By WCM | | April 26, 2019

This year's Ignite Gala brought together more than 800 financial professionals to celebrate our collective action for gender diversity and recognize 17 Champions of Change. 

It was an exciting night featuring great music, great food and even better people. Thank you to all who attended. A special thank you to our presenting sponsor CPA Ontario, to our contributing sponsors Equitable Bank, IHS Markit, Osler, and TMX, and of course to our partners in change BMO, CIBC, HSBC, Manulife, National Bank, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, RBC Capital Markets, Scotiabank, and TD. We could not have done it without you.
