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!
