An auction to help women achieve financial independence

Women were hit harder professionally by the pandemic and statistics show that they are slow to return to work, which could jeopardize progress in terms of equality.

By taking part in this interactive auction, participants will allow the Lise Watier Foundation to help more women living in a situation of economic, social or professional vulnerability to achieve financial independence.  More women will be able to become entrepreneurs, pursue post-secondary education or access a fulfilling job.

Discover all the prizes now!

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

“I am so grateful for the Lise Watier Foundation’s financial aid for studies. Thanks to this support, I have the tools I need to become professionally accomplished and to live again. I am proud of where am today and know that my children are too…and you can’t put a price on that.”

“Go ahead, believe in your dreams because anything is possible, really, ANYTHING! Never, at 60, would I have thought it was possible… But thanks to the Let’s Start Up program, I have come out of my shell; I now realize how much potential I have, and I know I will make it.
