What exactly is the DeGroote Women’s Professional Network? It’s a passionate collective of professionals, faculty, community leaders, McMaster alumni and students dedicated to the advancement of women in business and society.
In other words, it’s all about having your finger on the pulse of the Southern Ontario business community.
The new Network will be formally unveiled during a sold-out January 19 event at Burlington’s Ron Joyce Centre, where upwards of 180 people are expected to attend.
As part of the dynamic suite of offerings, participants will be able to meet and mingle with new colleagues, take part in professional development events, connect with mentors and mentees and contribute to local philanthropic endeavours.

Popular events such as the Breakfast Series, Cocktail series and DeGroote Executive Education series will all be featured components of the DeGroote Women’s Professional Network, along with a wide range of other engagement opportunities and activities. more…
