Enactus-AD-3Sixteen Enactus students had the extremely unique opportunity to sit down with one of Canada’s top female business leaders at the 2013 Enactus Canada National Exposition on May 7th.

Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge winners – the Enactus teams from Acadia University, Lambton College, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Okanagan College, Ryerson University and University of Calgary – and four lucky individuals, selected at the Donor Information and Career Opportunity Fair, spent 60 minutes in conversation with Arlene Dickinson, Scotiabank Business Champion and CEO of Venture Communications and YouInc.

Enactus-AD-8Together they discussed Scotiabank EcoLiving Green Challenge projects, the importance of entrepreneurship in Canada, global and local development priorities as well as the realities for, and responsibilities of, women and immigrants in the Canadian business environment.

It was a truly valuable and incredibly rare experience presented by Scotiabank. Many thanks to Arlene for her time and to Scotiabank for the opportunity.
