After 3 years of volunteering as a mentor with a women's club at Simon Fraser University (SFU), Loretta, founder of Passion to Lead, was approached by an inspired student to start a club at the university to support students who have gone through personal and academic challenges who needed a greater sense of community and confidence.
Since 2011 the club has provided workshops, events and group meetings for over 100 students. In 2015 the executive team created their first conference with over 50 attendees called Ignite Your Passion. It was an opportunity for students to learn more about different careers and success stories from a various sought-after professionals.
Thanks to Eileen Fisher Vancouver, the club now has funds to run more workshops and create more events at the SFU Burnaby campus.
