The Barrie Chamber of Commerce gave out six awards to outstanding women in Business in our community Thursday afternoon.
The sold-out event was held at Liberty North, where hundreds turned out to support this very important event! I new award was added this year, the Woman in Trade award!
This year’s keynote speaker was Jamie McMillan, a Journeyman Ironworker / Boilermaker and founder of KickAss Careers. Jamie became an ironworker in 2002 when women only represented 2 per cent of the workforce across Canada and the United States.
