JNF Future presents our 2nd annual Women Who Slay event, highlighting passionate and hard working women who have carved out their own unique paths and spaces in their respective  industries. From career changes, adversity, and challenges alongthe way, our panelists have each had journeys to finding joy inwhat they do.

This year's event will be a moderated conversation between unapologetically Jewish and allied female voices. 

After seeing tremendous hatred in our community here in Toronto and all around the world, we have brought together a fabulous panel of strong women who will do the tell-all about what has happened since the tragic massacre on October 7th and will share why they cannot be silent any longer in showing their support towards Israel and the antisemitism happening locally. 

Lights snacks and beverages will be served. Kashrut observed.

In 2023, she went out on her own and started The Narrative Agency.
