Il Buco Ristorante was the site of our first Women in Leadership Luncheon on June 11, 2015, as approximately 50 community leaders took the opportunity to network, share a meal and consider how innovation can fuel local social change.
We were proud to welcome Dr. Ilse Treurnict, CEO of MaRS Discovery District, as our keynote speaker at this inaugural event. Dr. Treurnict spoke about how business, technology and social innovation can combine for greater impact.
