The Women’s Leadership Network is steadily carving out its identity and promising future workshops for its members.

On June 7, the second luncheon this year had 55 women from the community attend, some for the first time, to hear about where the network is going.

The network was originally launched by BG Canada or what is now Prince Rupert LNG, and it is moving forward to becoming a standalone entity with the hopes of eventually applying for charitable status.

Four students from School District 52 presented to the room full of women at The Crest about their excursion to Abbotsford for the Girls Fly Too event. The girls learned about female helicopter pilots and had their first trip up in a helicopter. The two presenters said they were inspired to become pilots themselves.

Another presentation came from Michelle Bryant-Gravelle, who announced a free leadership workshop, sponsored by Ridley Terminals on Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. There are also plans for a mentorship and leadership workshop in October and possibly a speech craft workshop.

An expanded executive was also announced including Michelle Bryant-Gravelle, Rosa Miller, Shelby O’Brien, Miranda Mandarino, Chelsea Jesser, Shannon Balm and Diane Copperthwaite.
