M8 International Women’s Day Event Recap

An Evio Exclusive

M8 International Women's Day

It’s been one week since our first ever M8 International Women’s Day event. And wow, what an event, and what a feeling. We were blown away by all of your support, kindness, generosity and spirit as you came out to celebrate the accomplishments of women past, present, and future.

We can’t say it enough, but we’re going to try anyway - Thank you for coming out and supporting Evio Beauty Group.  By supporting one another, we are already making a change to the issues that matter. We’re happy to support the Canadian Women’s Foundation, a cause close to our heart.

The event meant a lot to us because we believe in empowering women and creating a safe space for women to learn from each other. Thank you to Love Child Social House for letting us host in that space.

During the event, we announced the launch of two special projects:

Our Evio Community platform and our founder, Brandi Leifso’s inclusion in Sephora’s Accelerator 2018 Cohort, representing Canada this year!

Power House Panels

This year we featured two powerhouse panels led by Natasha Raey, boss babe entrepreneur. We wanted to encourage a conversation about the long-winding road to success and the challenges women face in business and media.

Female Founders Panel

On March 8th, Evelyn Iona announced the acceptance of the Sephora Accelerator Program. A one-week boot camp in San Francisco where selected brands receive mentorship and work on developing their brands. To celebrate this milestone, our Female Founder panel featured brands that were also part of the Accelerator Program in the past.
