Power Play Up Close With: The Women of Team Canada


We have not one, not two, but FOUR undeniable reasons to join us for our 2021 Power Play Up Close With Event: Jacqueline Ryan, Marnie McBean OC OLY, Rosie MacLennan OLY and Sandra Levy OLY. Yes, for one hour starting at 8:30 AM on Tuesday, March 30th, we’re inviting all of you to join us as we sit down for breakfast with the women of Team Canada. 

It will be nearly one year to the day from when Team Canada was the first to decide not to send athletes to Tokyo last summer. Our panelists will take us behind the scenes to share the inside story around Team Canada’s leadership and this important decision. 

Incredibly impressive, accomplished executives and Olympians, not only will we discuss Team Canada’s decision that shaped an iconic global sporting event, but hear lessons learned through the pandemic, stories of resilience, and optimism as they focus on their road to Tokyo.
