Made-in-Hamilton event celebrates success of local women

Posted by Amy Kouniakis,

A made-in-Hamilton event commemorating International Women’s Day (Sunday, March 8, 2020) will celebrate the successes and entrepreneurial spirit of women in our city.

Another first-time panelist, Sonia Kumar-Seguin, hopes women will leave the event knowing that we’re all in this together.

“There are ways to support each other,” Kumar-Seguin, who is the executive director of Body Brave. “This type of event helps spread that awareness.”

Wellness and success can sometimes seem contradictory in a business setting but Kumar-Seguin says the two don’t have to be mutually exclusive — in fact, they go hand in hand.

“It’s really important for strong, successful women to be aware of their mental health,” she said. “Take care of yourself. It can only be good for your business.”
