6th Annual BC Women in Business Luncheon: Our Story, Our Success, May 5th, 2011, Hosted by Women in Leadership Foundation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 26, 2011) - On Thursday, May 5th, the Women In Leadership Foundation (www.womeninleadership.ca) will be hosting its 6th Annual BC Women in Business Luncheon: Our Story, Our Success from 11am – 1:30pm, at the Hycroft Mansion in Vancouver, BC.

Presented by TD Bank Financial Group, this luncheon is a part of the Women in Leadership National Spotlight Speaker Series, and showcases female role models in business and fosters the expansion of networks. At the annual luncheon, you'll hear leading local women in business share their journeys of success, practical tips and inspiration. Proceeds will benefit the Women in Leadership Mentorship Program (more information at www.womeninleadership.ca).

Rita Rogers, Senior Manager, Canucks Sports & Entertainment, will be moderating the panel as each woman shares their stories of a pivotal moment in their life — a particular experience, decision or engagement — that led to their success. So "her story, her success" will become "our story, our success."

This year there will be four inspirational business women from the Vancouver community.
