"We are delighted to team up with FWE to bring tailored education to women business leaders through our program," said Gillian Riley, President and CEO, Tangerine, and executive sponsor of The Scotiabank Women Initiative™. "Empowering women through education is fundamental to helping women take their businesses to the next level.

With The Go-To, we're making education accessible and digestible, in 20-minute episodes that can fit into breakfast time or in between meetings," she continued, adding that guests are experienced, successful Canadian entrepreneurs themselves such as Joanna Griffiths, Priya Chopra, Traci Costa, Taran Ghatrora and many more.
