Lift as you Climb

Shirley Chisholm is a strategic and influential leader with numerous professional accomplishments and awards in the insurance industry. For as long as I've know her,

Shirley has been passionate about helping women optimize their full potential and purpose to confidently find their North Star.  

This drive and recognition of the disparity in diversity of women of colour in the upper ranks and C' Suites within the Canadian Insurance industry led her to co-found Ebony Women International Insurance Network or (EWIIN). “Lift as you Climb” is Shirley’s modus operandi and one of the tenets of EWIIN. EWIIN provides peer mentorship, coaching and networking opportunities via personal and professional development workshops to support women of diverse ethnic backgrounds to achieve their full leadership potential. In my past life, I was a proud member of EWIIN and can attest to the benefits of belonging to this organization including, education, fellowship and sisterhood. You can follow and catch up with EWIIN on IG @ewiin_canada.

The mother of 3 adult daughters and 4 adorable grandchildren this Glama has an eye for style and flare brings a sense of sophistication to every event. Let's raise a glass and toast our phenomenal Shirley This International Women's Month.
