MONTREAL BILLBOARD, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2017
Show recap and contacts
The Leaders au Feminen Center brings together women from the greater Montreal area who want to start a business or grow their business. They form a community of female entrepreneurs who are committed to their businesses and business ideas. They offer networking events, workshops and shared office space.
The Coloured Women’s Club was the most prominent organization formed during the Black women’s movement in the US. The Montreal chapter was the first CWC in Canada. It was founded in 1902 by seven women who moved here with their husbands who worked on the railroad. “We’ve helped the homeless, single mothers, and helped with the emotional needs of the community. Now we focus on education and all money goes to scholarships for young black youth,” says Rachel Salmon, the interim director and Montreal Billboard’s guest this week.
