We’re excited to announce WCT Celebrates: Sparks of Change, a leadership excellence event series presented by Microsoft. Seven webinars throughout the month of March will be a chance for you to meet and engage with the recipients of our 2020 Annual Leadership Excellence Awards. Having to cancel our 2020 Annual Leadership Excellence Awards Gala meant finding a new way to applaud the honourees. We are proud to expand the celebration of award recipients to more people in more locations. WCT Celebrates: Sparks of Change lets you access the wisdom of our winners, wherever you are.

Webinars will explore topics represented by the award categories, like mentorship, gender equity, innovation, and male allyship, and fireside chats with our Woman of the Year and Company of the Year winners. Moderated by prominent women in our field, each event will be a stimulating conversation about the questions that unite us.
