Women in Business Event: A Celebration of Leadership and Inspiration


Last Friday marked the grand finale of our celebration of the Women in Business campaign, in honor of International Women’s Day at Acsenda School of Management . It was an event full of inspiration and knowledge, as we had the privilege of hosting two outstanding women leaders in the business world.

Our first speaker, Aimee Sehwoerer BBA , shared her journey to turning a vision into reality. From her start in the financial services industry to her current role as vice president of investments for Canadian expansion markets at Gentai Financial Group , Aimee has been a leading advocate, championing diversity and inclusion initiatives. She imparted valuable lessons learned along the way, reminding us that challenges are opportunities at every turn of the journey. As she put it:

“It’s not about how many times you fall, it’s about how quickly you get back up.” & “Don’t trust what the world tells you is possible. Create the world you want.”

Our second speaker, Marija Stanojevic, dazzled us with her impressive network and her commitment to client success in the real estate industry. As a top real estate professional and member of the Medallion Corporation , Marija emphasized the importance of integrity, hard work, and self-confidence.

“Your network is your net worth.” & If you put out 150%, then you can always expect 100% back.”

The event was an enriching experience for all participants, including staff, students and faculty. We delved into the importance of maintaining a balance between personal and professional life, explored the changing opportunities for women in leadership roles, and gained invaluable insights on how to navigate the business world with resilience and determination.

We extend our sincere thanks to Aimee and Marija for their willingness to share their journeys and vulnerabilities, creating a safe and empowering environment for all. Together, they inspired us to leverage our strengths and strive for greatness, both in our careers and our personal lives.

We look forward to continuing our journey of empowerment and growth, fueled by the lessons learned and connections made at this extraordinary event.
