Celebrating 20 Years of Women as Career Coaches (WACC)

We invite you to join us for an inspiring night of mentorship, and to celebrate 20 years of  Women as Career Coaches (WACC).

Over the past 20 years, WACC has brought together thousands of youth and mentors from the community to engage in informal conversations, listen to a line-up of inspiring spotlight speakers, and participate in a panel discussion about various career pathways.

This empowering evening is designed to provide the next generation with the opportunity to discover a wide range of potential career paths. Together, we can inspire youth to feel confident and optimistic about their futures and their place in the world of work.
