SELF CARE: Putting Yourself First
One thing we hear from moms all the time is that they often come last – after kids, spouses, work, family – it’s hard to find time to take care of yourself. But we also know that when moms focus on self-care everyone wins.
The evening will focus on topics like:
- The Truth About Gender Equity in Healthcare
- Better Sex Through Mindfulness
- Making Your Personal Fitness Goals a Priority
- Lessening your Mental Load
Leading Moms is a place where stories are told, experiences are shared and inspiration is felt by everyone in the room. We hope to see you there.

Gender imbalance and racism have been a driving force in Lotte Davis’s life ever since she grew up in Africa in the 50’s. Now she’s building schools in Africa and providing scholarships for girls in an effort to create change. Learn how one woman can start a multiplier effect that will ultimately impact tens of thousands of people.
Lotte Davis is the Co-Founder of AG Hair, the only manufacturer of professional hair care products in Canada, with distribution in over 15,000 salons and beauty stores across North America, Australia, Central America, South America and Taiwan.In addition to building her company into a well-renowned and respected beauty brand, Davis has worked tirelessly to demonstrate that AG Hair cares. Having grown up in the dawn of the apartheid movement in South Africa, she was acutely aware of the legacy of mistreatment and lack of opportunities for women in particular.
In 2008, she began building schools for girls in some of the poorest regions in Africa with funding from AG Hair promotions and AG’s salon partners. In 2013, she developed her own NGO called One Girl Can expanding the scope of the work she does in Africa to include scholarships for girls to secondary and post secondary schools.
She continues to build infrastructure at these schools to create more dynamic learning environments, and now mentors and coaches thousands of girls each year to help them realize their potential through goal setting and confidence building. Since 2008, Lotte has raised more than $3.4 million, is building her sixth school in Africa, and provides scholarships for over 235 girls in university and secondary school.
Lotte is the 2016 winner of the YWCA Women of Distinction award for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
