UBC HOPE and SI of Vancouver’s Women’s Career Conference on May 9th from 10am-3pm on the UBC campus will bring together women from different walks of life in efforts to empower, educate and equip women of this generation with the tools and skills needed to turn their dreams into reality. Girls from local Vancouver high schools and colleges are invited to this free conference where there will be a morning of inspiring keynote speakers, a catered lunch, and an afternoon of workshops where they will learn important life skills such as university transition and how to network with professionals in the field they hope to go into. This conference will be the launching pad into potential mentorship, internships, and job-shadowing opportunities with the keynote speakers and affiliated guest speakers. We hope that local high schools and organizations will partner with us in inviting girls 14-20 to this unique opportunity.

Our focus of Year 2014-2015 – Developmet
“The focus of this year is on development. Our theme is: ‘Open Source’ — to open our sources for fundraising and project development. Members of Soroptimist, individuals or organizations in the public are welcome to propose and try their ideas for fundraisers and projects based on Soroptimist’s mission, which helps the girls and women in our community and the world.”
“From all the projects, events and meetings we went through together, we learned more about our club and community, we were touched by those who have devoted their time and talents for our club and community, and we learned the connections and organizations that SI Vancouver has sponsored for so many years! We just feel proud to be Soroptimists in Vancouver!” — Ching S., President, Soroptimist International of Vancouver
