On supporting other women: Women are keen to learn from each other's experience and to share their experiences. We have different challenges from men in the business world and we will be more successful if we share and support each other.
How Evi gives back: I have been involved with the Board of Trade’s Women's Leadership Circle Advisory Council since its inception and now Chair the council. In this role I am trying to meet as many women board members as possible through hosting WLC tables at events and helping the Board of Trade organize receptions and events to bring members together.
I am also one of the co-founders of the Whitecaps Networks cabinet, a committee established to build support for the development of women's soccer in BC and build relationships with Vancouver’s business community.
In addition, I have done pro-bono work or spoken at such organizations as FWE, WEC, YWCA, YMCA (board member) and Minerva. These are all local organizations that provide terrific support to women in different capacities.
