Manjit Minhas, CEO of Calgary-based Minhas Breweries & Distillery will serve as this year’s keynote speaker at the Pink Attitude Evolution Gala in honour of International Women’s Day. She is now known more nationally after being seen on the television program Dragon’s Den.
The gala takes place at the Embassy Grand Convention Centre on March 10. Hundreds of movers, shakers and aspiring shakers from the South Asian community are expected to attend.
“This is an opportunity for us to celebrate women that shatter through barriers, while inspiring and empowering others to be prominent leaders regardless of age, gender, orientation, race, religion or abilities,” said Ruby Dhillon, founder of Pink Attitude Evolutions in a release.
Speakers at previous Pink Attitude events include Toronto Argonauts great, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, and current leader of the government in the House of Commons and Waterloo MP, Bardish Chagger.
This year’s event will feature an awards ceremony, dinner and other attractions. For the first time in its three-year history, young girls who make a difference in their home communities will also be recognized.
