Link building is the practice of getting other websites to link back to yours. It’s an important SEO strategy that helps you get to the top of search engine results and in front of potential customers.
If done right, link building can be like a “popularity vote” that brings credibility to your website and your business; if done wrong, you might make the mistake of acquiring bad links that could harm your SEO or even incur a Google penalty!
There can be a lot of confusion about strategies and best practices around link building. So Women’s Enterprise Centre is hosting SEO specialist, Glynis Tao, for a free session to take you through the process of “How to Get Started with Web Link Building.”

Leaders come from all walks of life, and they create businesses and communities through their actions. Every action a person takes, every conversation they have moves them ahead as a leader. In this workshop, participants will learn about their unique leadership style and learn how to improve on the strengths they already have—even if they don’t think they’re a leader! Leadership is much more than a “to-do” list; effective leadership is an art and a science and, most importantly, it can be learned. It can be improved through skills, practice and self-knowledge.
At the end of the workshop, participants will have their unique answers to these questions:

Women in mentorship, investing and advisory roles create a world of opportunities for women who follow in their footsteps, and that support is needed now more than ever.
Women form 47% of the workforce, yet make up only 5% of CEOs, less than 20% of Angel Investors and less than 20% of Board positions. And recent progress is eroding; one third of working women in Canada are considering leaving their jobs, due to increased care responsibilities during the pandemic.
We need to support women to step up, not step out – and no one does it alone.
If you’re ready to take the next step in your professional development, this program will bridge that gap to ignite and expand your network and connect you with opportunities.
We know that leadership diversity leads to innovation, economic growth and social change. Companies with more women on their boards have better financial performance. Women-owned businesses deliver more than 2x per dollar invested and 69% integrate social impact into their businesses.
If you’re advancing in your career or business, you may be familiar with WHY we need more women in leadership roles.
The IGNITE Leadership Program will show you HOW to step into the roles of Mentor, Investor, Advisor and Board Member.
This program is built around the power of connections, and we have an incredible lineup of seasoned leaders who will share their expertise in each of these roles and inspire you to explore new growth opportunities.
By the end of this series, you’ll have a plan to build your own financial and social capital, accelerate your wealth and expand leadership opportunities for yourself and others.
Each session will give you the chance to:
LEARN NEW SKILLS
Acknowledge your strengths and value through interactive learning sessions that give you the confidence to step up.
Hear the stories of women who give back—and those who have been impacted by their leadership!
IGNITE YOUR NETWORK
Forge meaningful relationships with peers during breakout sessions, plus learn where you can access opportunities for your next step.
