Premier Christy Clark Helps BBOT Launch New Women’s Initiative


At a sold-out luncheon on March 11th, Premier Christy Clark spoke to the importance of encouraging and supporting women in leadership roles and helped the Burnaby Board of Trade kick-off its new Women’s Initiative.

Premier Clark was the keynote speaker at the Women’s Business Leadership Luncheon, the inaugural event of the BBOT’s new Women’s Initiative, a working group that will bring together both men and women interested in supporting women in leadership positions at all levels of business to foster important discussion, facilitate meaningful connections, and advance advocacy positions.

The BBOT Women’s Initiative will provide a forum for women at all levels of career and business to hear the personal experiences, motivations and successes of women leaders and ignite dialogue on the topic of women’s leadership and foster valuable connections in our community.

Individuals interested in learning more about the BBOT’s new Women’s Initiative are invited to share their thoughts on what the priorities of the group should be and to help set its agenda.  A short, 2-minute survey is available online here:
