Toronto mixer a first for NEW Canada
Sunday, July 17, 2011
One hundred Network of Executive Women Canada members and
supporters from the greater Toronto area met at the first-ever NEW mixer
outside of the United States July 6.
NEW Canada unveiled its three-year strategic plan at the event,
held at Kraft Foods Canada’s corporate offices in Mississauga, Ontario. The
Network will partner with Deloitte to conduct a benchmarking survey looking at
leadership in the Canadian cpg/retail industry and identifying opportunities
for future NEW programs.
"The reception helped
drive awareness for NEW Canada and was very effective in recruiting new
committee members,” said Karen Young, general manager, Nestlé Waters and NEW
Canada regional co-chair, programs.
