More than 90 attendees gathered to hear entrepreneur and mining executive Alicia Woods speak at the CIPH Women’s Network lunch on September 28 in Mississauga, ON. Woods recounted the development of the Covergalls Workwear, her appearance on CBC’s Dragon’s Den, and the trials of juggling that venture with a challenging career as general manager of Marcotte Mining Machinery Services Inc.

“You have a choice, to build someone else’s dream, or to build your own,” said Woods. She encouraged everyone in the audience to push the boundaries in pursuit of their dreams and goals.

Women’s Network committee member Sian Smith, noted that the organization now has 221 members just 10 months after it was established.
