Levene Speaker Series The Knix Way: Building a Brand with Purpose featuring Joanna Griffiths, Founder and CEO, Knix:

Wednesday, Novemeber 17
12:00 noon - 1:00 p.m. (Saskatchewan time)
Remote via zoom

Since launching Knix in 2013, Founder and CEO Joanna Griffiths has built it into one of the fastest growing intimate apparel brands worldwide — it is now the sixth fastest growing company in Canada. In March 2021, Griffiths made headlines when she closed a $50M funding round, three days before giving birth to her twin daughters. Throughout the process, she had one simple rule — any potential investor who questioned her pregnancy and her ability to run a nine-figure company and be a mother was cut from the process.

The only Canadian to be named one of Adweek’s 2021 Women Trailblazers, Griffiths will share lessons learned from her entrepreneurial journey that began with a dream to empower women and today finds her recognized globally as a marketing disrupter.

The Levene Speaker Series is *free* to attend , though you are encouraged to make a donation to the Levene Indigenous Pathways Program. A link to donate is located on the confirmation page that will appear following your registration.
