    Join us on February 20th for a breakfast reception with Brigadier-General Josée Robidoux!

    In 2015, BGen Robidoux was named one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women of the Year by the Women’s Executive Network. That same year, she became the first female commander of the 35 Canadian Brigade Group and the first woman to command a brigade group in Québec. She has served in the Canadian Armed Forces for almost 34 years, including a deployment in Afghanistan where she was a senior advisor to the Afghan National Army Chief of Training and Force Structure and Chief of Advisors. She is currently the Director of General Reserves and Employer Support.

    BGen Robidoux will speak about her career, leadership and how to lead people. There will be time for your questions, as well.
