UPDATE: We have exciting news regarding the UCPBA Awards coming soon. In the meantime, our planned program has been delayed for several months. Stay tuned!
The first annual UCPBA Awards was held on April 10, 2016 in conjunction with the Ukrainian-Canadian Business and Professional Trade Show organized by UkrPages. Over 150 attendees were present to support and acknowledge our best and brightest Ukrainian-Canadian businesses and professionals.
We plan to build on the success of the first awards show, with the second annual UCPBA Awards! The UCPBA Awards celebrates the most successful Ukrainian-Canadian businesses and professionals in their areas of expertise.
There is no cost to nominate your favourite businesses, so please visit the Awards Nomination page and make your nominations today.
Back in May, UCPBA posted the photo at right from one of our meetings on Facebook. UCPBA member and business owner, Adrianna Stadnyk, spotted something odd: there was only one woman in the photo. Adrianna suggested that we should do more to highlight the successful businesswomen in the Toronto Ukrainian-Canadian community. So we did!
On July 27, UCPBA hosted its first ever Women in Business event. Held at Baka Gallery Cafe, the event was a smashing success as we had a packed house to hear five successful Ukrainian-Canadian women tell their stories:
- Ivanka Siolkowsky – The Tidy Moose
- Liliana Dutka – Formula Life Inc.
- Adrianna Stadnyk – The Fix + Co
- Oksana Miroutenko – Barrister & Solicitor
- Samantha Gladish – Keynote speaker
Thank you to all of our amazing speakers, and to our attendees! Special thank you to Adrianna for holding us accountable, and for volunteering to be one of our first speakers!
We look forward to having this become a regular series. Stay tuned!
