On June 7th, 2019, I had the pleasure of capturing this wonderful event hosted by the Veza Community and their wonderful CEO, Manpreet Dhillon. I was so excited and honoured, to not only photograph this event about Women & Investment - but to also be able attend and absorb all of the information and energy of all of the attendees and organizers.
What is Veza all about? Veza is a diversity consulting firm specialized in leadership training for women of culturally diverse backgrounds. They offer a variety training, workshops, international trade missions and executive and career coaching. In a nutshell, they are a group of wonderful ladies, out there spreading knowledge and support - so that they can see other women get out into the world to grow, dominate and spread love.
This event, sponsored by Delloitte, focused on women, money and boards. The event allowed for three very informative and special talks, by three wonderful ladies. (see images below for who they are and what they do!)

The event was kicked off by some information and treatment using essential oils, sponsored by Saje Wellness. I also have to mention, that Saje, also had their most productive blends diffusing throughout the office space. It was refreshing, considering the session kicked off at 8:00 AM.
After learning and utilizing the fragrant and calming oils, Manpreet led the group into a meditation. The meditation transformed the room's energy, and it was instantly noticeable.

Women attending the event, also learned and had the change to practice their #bossbabe skills, by presenting and showing off their power poses. We had so much fun!
If you have the chance, definitely check out the Veza Community and check out one of their upcoming events. It's a great way to meet others who are passionate about the world, and to connect with likeminded women who are out there, hustling!
