Levene Speaker Series - Joanna Griffiths

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

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 welcome to make a donation to the Levene Indigenous Pathways Program when you register.
