Graduation Ceremonies 2022-2023

Graduation Ceremonies 2022-2023

Graduation is always an occasion rich in emotions. Not one, but two ceremonies were recently held to celebrate the achievements of our Let’s Start Up Program participants.

On September 12, the Graduation Ceremony for the Program’s 2023-2023 cohorts was held at Concordia University’s John Molson School of Business to celebrate the achievements of the women who completed the s’Entreprendre program in Quebec. A total of 137 women from our 4 points of service proudly graduated that day.

For the second ceremony at the YWCA Toronto on September 14, part of our team was present to celebrate the 28 women from the Toronto cohort who also received their diplomas from Concordia University.

We would like to express our deep gratitude to Dr. Anne-Marie Croteau (Dean, John Molson School of Business, Concordia University) and Ms. Isabel Dunnigan (Associate Vice-Rector, Lifelong Learning and Executive Director, Concordia Continuing Education) for honoring us with their presence at these two memorable events.

Our warmest congratulations to our exceptional women on their success!


Graduate of the Let’s Start Up Program

The Lise Watier Foundation offers the Let’s Start Up program in Montreal, Toronto, Quebec City, the Laurentians and Montérégie. More than 200 women a year are committed to taking action through the Let’s Start Up program. They graduate with a better understanding of their strengths and skills, as well as the knowledge and tools to implement their professional project. Women thus begin a new journey towards financial independence through entrepreneurship, a return to school or a more fulfilling job.
