2nd KOWIN Vancouver Leadership and Mentoring Event (11/23/2013)

You are cordially invited to The 2nd KOrean Women’s International Network (KOWIN) Vancouver Leadership and Mentoring Event, “Connect, Empower, Inspire, and Our Stories.” This event aims to mentor personal and professional explorations among young Korean-Canadian females in Vancouver by providing the opportunity to network through the sharing of personal experiences and exchanging useful information.

It would be a great honor to have you as one of our guests at this meaningful event. Your attendance would also help to further encourage our young Korean-Canadians by instilling them with confidence and being a role model to them.

Your participation in the networking part of our event, designed to round up all the attendees, would be greatly appreciated as well.

코윈 밴쿠버에서 주관하는 제 2회 KOWIN Vancouver Leadership and Mentoring Event “Connect, Empower, Inspire and Our Stories”에 귀하를 모시고자 합니다. 이번 행사는 전문직 한인 여성들이 각자의 경험과 유용한 정보를 우리 젊은 인재들과 공유하고, 다양한 직업들에 대한 탐색과 인맥형성의 기회를 제공하는데 그 목적을 두고 있습니다.

젊은 인재들과 유망한 전문인들이 긍정적인 멘토링을 통하여 자신감과 자긍심을 고취시키게 될 이번 행사에 귀한 시간 내시어 자리를 빛내주시길 바라며, 아울러 키노트 스피치 후에 이어질 네트워킹 세션까지 머물러 함께 참여해 주시길 부탁 드립니다.
