HERhalton International Women’s Day Breakfast

March 9 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrating the accomplishments of women entrepreneurs across Halton and beyond.


Haltech’s HERhalton Women’s Day Social is back, live and in-person this year, to celebrate the many successes of women entrepreneurs across Halton and beyond. HERhalton  is a peer-to-peer community for professional women who live and/or work in the Halton Region. Members support and empower one another through respectful and honest discussions, collaboration, and networking opportunities.

The intent of this event is to encourage networking and peer support, create awareness and most of all give women and supporters a chance to come together and celebrate accomplishments.

This year’s Keynote Speaker, Emily O’Brien, Founder & CEO of Comeback Snacks, will share her story of being formerly incarcerated and how she transformed herself and made her time in jail as meaningful as possible. Emily is an example that positive change can happen within correctional institutions with passion, drive, and a positive mindset.

In addition to Emily, we have an amazing PowerTalks Panel featuring three more special guests, moderated by Julia Matthews of Not Your Child Corp. These women will share their stories of success, challenges, and lessons learned as entrepreneurs.

IWD 2023 campaign theme: EmbraceEquity

For International Women’s Day and beyond, let’s all fully #EmbraceEquityEquity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have. A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA.
