We’ve been partnering with Pioneering Women for about seven years, and without fail, their events always prove to be completely helpful, with warm and inviting vibes and lots of laughs.

We’re pleased to work with them once again for their upcoming Put Your Best Self Forward event, which will allow guests to participate in round-table discussions with mentors, get a makeup touch-up by My Beauty Crew, and leave with a fresh headshot. In between, there will be ample time to chat and mix in a room full of Toronto’s hardest-working professionals, hailing predominantly from the film & TV industry, but all arts-related (or arts-curious!) are welcome to attend.

Shedoesthecity’s founder and editor-in-chief, Jen McNeely, who worked in at Alliance Films and CBC Television prior to launching Shedoesthecity in 2007, is excited to be part of this illustrious group of mentors that also includes, maxine bailey (formally the VP of Advancement at TIFF and founder of TIFF’s #ShareHerJourney campaign), Sandy Scholes (EVP Global Human Resources at Entertainment One) and Laura Quinn (Director of Communications at United Way Greater Toronto). Come with a current problem you’re trying to solve, and be sure to ask them your questions!

This will be a fantastic evening, and it’s all happening at the eOne headquarters (134 Peter Street, 5th floor) on Thursday, November 22 from 6:15 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 and include nibbles, wine, other refreshments, and a complimentary headshot! This is money well spent, people! Space is limited, so don’t delay. Get your tickets now.

Pioneering Women was initially founded in late 2010 as a resource to support women working in the Canadian Motion Picture Industry. Although they have expanded to include other like-minded industries, their objective still is to address concerns that may restrict women’s personal and professional growth. They do this by planning and hosting professional development events and initiatives that are intended to be funinspirational, informative and affordable. They also aim to introduce women to positive role models.
