V.I.A. sister publication Business In Vancouver is hosting one of their Business Excellence Series talks on women in business this September.

The event will offer an afternoon of stories, advice and networking, as well as expert advice from a panel of business leaders. They will address the challenges women face at work, and share strategies that help women win in the workplace.

The conversation will cover issues around equal pay, developing your voice, balancing work and family, and how successful women rise through the ranks. The discussion will deliver practical insights for women in any sector, at any stage of their careers.

Marni Johnson, Senior Vice President, HR and Corporate Affairs, BlueShore Financial, has over 25 years’ expertise in financial services,  and provides overall leadership and strategic direction in the areas of human resources and corporate affairs.

BIV’s own multimedia reporter, Haley Woodin, will moderate the discussion. She co-hosts and co-produces BIV Today: the only daily podcast in B.C. dedicated to covering business. She appears weekly on Global News Morning and contributes regularly to BIV’s print and online publications.
