Why participate?


Are you an entrepreneur looking for an international experience to enhance your entrepreneurial expertise? This evening is an opportunity not to be missed. Join us for a panel showcasing three Quebec businesswomen who have taken on the challenge of international mentorship, redefining their leadership and integrating social and environmental impact at the core of their business models.

After the panel, you will have the opportunity to network with the CECI program management team to explore the possibilities of participating in this unique experience.

This innovative program combines international cooperation with Quebec entrepreneurial expertise to build a future where women's entrepreneurial leadership transcends borders.

By 2028, many women will have the extraordinary opportunity to carry out inspiring mentoring mandates in Africa and Latin America. This initiative is designed to catalyze the growth and leadership of women entrepreneurs worldwide.

We also share a common desire to ensure that tomorrow's leaders have a legitimate place both in the professional world of Quebec and internationally.
