First IRYD Diversity in Business Workshops Series

First IRYD Diversity in Business Workshops Series 

June 28, 2021 | 11:18 PM ET

On June 27th 2021, The International Rwanda Youth for Development (IRYD) finally launched its Diversity in Business Workshops Series. After this first workshop, we are excited to continue this financial education journey until Fall 2021. IRYD will continue to educate youth aged 18-39 on financial topics to promote positive inclusion and participation in the Canadian economy.

Due to Covid-19, the event was held virtually where participants had a chance to ask and share opinions and ask questions in the comfort of their own homes.

The workshop was presented by Me. Larry Markowitz, a corporate lawyer, financial communications expert and investor. We thank Me. Markowitz for his insighful introductory presentation on Personal Branding and Personal Finance. We also thank participants for active participation in our first workshop.
