Canadian Women's Foundation

Keynote speaker Ashley Judd engaged the audience this morning at the Canadian Women's Foundation Toronto Breakfast with her passionate speech decrying violence against women. An "outspoken critic of the media’s hypersexualized portrayal of women and girls, and global activist on the issue of sex trafficking," Judd spoke from the heart and shared personal stories that empowered and inspired the audience.

Thorek/Scott & Partners are proud corporate sponsors of the Canadian Women's Foundation, and this year Lauren Thorek, Director at Thorek/Scott & Partners, sat on the Breakfast Committee.

The Canadian Women's Foundation specializes in "helping women and girls move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence."

At Thorek/Scott we invest in people, and passionately believe everyone deserves a chance at social and economic success. Attaining gender equality is essential, and appreciate that "women and girls face different kinds of economic and social challenges" and actively engage in events and practices that act to improve the status of women.

This morning's breakfast was an engaging, inspiring, and informative event that we are so proud to have participated in; we encourage you to find out more about the Canadian Women's Foundation at www.canadianwomen.org/
