The event is a seminar series featuring local female entrepreneurs who share the knowledge they have gained in their respective industries; including areas such as nutrition, flowers, dental and equestrian, said Melissa Cursons, also on the organizing board.

The Summit also looks to celebrate and empower the women, she said.

It was noted women face some unique challenges such as having to look after young families at times. With that in mind daycare during the one-day event is part of the $20 fee.

The event will run 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Yorkton Family Resource Centre.
