Consul General of Pakistan in Toronto Abdul Hameed received the delegation of LADIESFUND and hoped that successful Pakistan origin women professionals in Canada would help their counterparts in Pakistan by sharing best practices, experiences and strategies for achieving targets in their respective fields. The purpose of the event was professional friendship building, networking, and connecting the community back to Pakistan. Spotted at the event were politician Sarah Bokhari, art curator Neshmia Ahmed, safety expert Asma Kazmi, Happiness guru Shaista Ali, realtor Shafaq Hussain, PhD Dr. Sarah Alam, beauty brand manufacturer Samina Ali, mortgage specialist Reema Hasnain, EY’s Rukhsana Hossein, Healonline’s Kanwal Salman, and LADIESFUND President Tara Uzra Dawood.

The Consul General said, “Successful Pakistan-origin women professionals in Canada could help their counterparts in Pakistan by sharing best practices, experiences and strategies for achieving targets in their respective fields. The information technology based linkages among women professionals of both countries would build the knowledge and skill corridor with a positive impact on the quality of life of Pakistani women. Positive interventions and projects in social sectors like education and health in Pakistan by expatriate Pakistanis are now possible due to the prevalence of communication technology and its more frequent use in these sectors during the Covid period.”

“We are greatly honoured to bring a LADIESFUND delegation of a cross section of trailblazing Pakistani-Canadian women to meet with the Honorable Consul General,” said LADIESFUND President Tara Uzra Dawood. “Our platform not only aligns and introduces these incredible, impactful women to each other, but through occasions such as these, facilitates their connection back to Pakistan and their counterparts living and working in Pakistan.”

The event was structured as a Roundtable with each delegate sharing her introduction along with needs and leads, followed by a valuable talk by the honorable Consul General.

The selected delegates were representative of different sectors, ages and years living in Canada. Their success in their careers was, however, truly inspirational.

“I was honoured to connect with LADIESFUND and delighted to know Tara and the great work they are doing,” said delegate Kanwal Salman.

“It was an amazing event and reflected the hard work and caliber of the LADIESFUND,” said delegate Sarah Bokhari.

“The event was so well arranged and I loved meeting everyone,” said delegate Asma Kazmi.

The Roundtable ended with a tasty high tea and more casual mingling over a selection of Pakistani favourites savories and sweets.
