Women Empowerment Convention
Emon Patterson is a local entrepreneur who, like many other women, has experienced the ups and downs of business, but knows that their reality can be made easier if they can find ways to support each other.
“I think there’s a need for women, especially women in our community, to come together to promote, encourage and help each other,” says Patterson, a hairdresser who has been in business for several years.
She says uniting and supporting each other’s initiative is the only way for many to succeed.
So Patterson recently formed The Women Empowerment Movement of Canada to begin the process of bringing women together.
“The Movement is aimed at empowering women in business, also for networking and promoting each other,” she says. “It will also help us to develop and showcase our skills, talents in education and in our professional careers.
In the end it will help to build self-esteem to bring out the best in us.”
To that end, Patterson is organizing a Women Convention aimed at empowering females in business and those pursuing education.
It takes place on February 24, at 8250 Mountain Sights Ave., Montreal, at 12 noon and will feature presentations by Dr. Hyacinth Stewart, Sandra King and other women of influence.
