Details at the end of this post.

With gender such a big part of our conversations at masalamommas, I am always looking for events that truly inspire female leadership. I am honoured to be attending the Art of Leadership For Women conference this year in Toronto.  Like others in the series of “Art Of” Conferences, the lineup of speakers is incredible.  The female leaders speaking truly inspire  me because of all they’ve accomplished but I’m also excited get the chance to hear their journeys in their own words.

These are some of the female leaders I’m looking forward to hearing from:



Martha of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia will discuss her experiences as an innovator and influential leader in the world of business. Together with fellow attendees,  Stewart will address the challenges and rewards from her path to success, her career trajectory, the importance of life-long learning, leadership, inspiration, work/life balance, and more.
