Gwen Gnazdowsky is an excellent facilitator with a very warm, caring approach that helps women develop important skills to advance in their careers and personal lives. She was instrumental in the success of a series of MakePossible Mentoring Workshops held at BCIT, SFU and UBC during 2015 and 2016. Gwen led diverse groups of women through interactive exercises to learn how to network effectively, ask for what they need and how to market themselves.These workshops helped create a sense of community, developed support networks and helped build confidence.
