June 4: Style for Leadership - Women, Wardrobes and Winning
Join us with Julie Murrell for an online webinar about Style for Leadership.
Women are often criticized more harshly on their appearance. This webinar will touch on building confidence, becoming empowered, finding peace with defining and expressing oneself, and commanding leadership through style.
Julie Murrell is a certified image consultant who empowers professional women to feel confident and gets noticed through a professional style that is comfortable, authentic, and that commands respect.
She believes that when a woman develops her confidence through a style that expresses the best in herself, it transforms the way she sees herself, which is the key to growing professionally and fulfilling her potential.
As the founder of Julie Murrell Image, Julie offers a 6-week online program teaching Professional Style Essentials for women to develop a professional style that is authentic, comfortable, and easy to put together to take the next steps in their career.

Faces of Chestermere
Most often we do not understand what diversity means, or the discriminations that people in our community might be experiencing. Faces of Chestermere aims to bring awareness to Chestermere’s diversity by photographing residents faces, and displaying those photographs with statistics throughout the City.
Photo booths will displayed at special events like Canada Day and Water Festival. We invite residents to join together in publicly proclaiming their personal choices, characteristics, or beliefs and showcase that differences are not to be feared.
