Spark donates $2,500 to Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society

Spark Chair Jennifer Moore said the success of the conference earlier this year helped in making the donation possible.

“This was an opportunity for us not only to give a cheque to the Fort St. John Women’s Resource Society. As you may remember at the conference in lieu of gifts for each of our speakers we said we were going to make a donation to the Dress for Success program. I’m very happy to report that the conference was more successful than we even thought so we’re presenting a cheque for $2,500 dollars today,” she explained.

She added that Spark was created to bring professional development to the area that would be otherwise unavailable locally, which in turn puts added stress on women not just in their career but in other areas.

“Spark is a women’s professional development conference created by women in the Peace Country for women in the Peace Country. Professional development opportunities for us are not plentiful here. It means we have to go to Calgary or Vancouver for two days. It means additional days for travel. As women our lives are often pulled in many directions because you’re not only managing your career, but your home and your kids,” she stated.
