Throughout the Women Who Influence event on March 8, 2021, the presenters shared powerful strategies to help attendees face fears, break through glass ceilings, and inspire change. Book and podcast recommendations were plentiful at canfitpro’s International Women’s Day celebration.


Think of this list as your personal and professional development curriculum for the next few months. Or, return to these resources whenever you need a dose of inspiration! Any leader, of any gender identity, will gain valuable insights from this information.
