Friday, March 8th was International Woman's Day. There is a multitude of successful women in our valley including CIBC branch manager Pat Giffin.
"I think it's important for women to be in business as leaders. Most women have a natural nack to be a leader and again that role can take on many different forms no matter what type of job category or job that you hold," explained Pat Giffin.
Giffin goes on to talk about her past with CIBC and what she did that helps her with her success today.
"I've taken different steps. I've been with CIBC for over 24 years, the last 10 years as the manager or banking central leader. Different sources and accreditation have helped me in my role and my success and my day to day skills," continued Giffin.
Many women often strive for success in the business world as it is only within the last seventy years that women have been able to be in positions of power.
"I think it's very important for women to strive for success and that success can mean different things for different people. I think everyone no matter what position or job or role that they hold. Each woman has leadership skills to bring to the table," concluded Pat Giffin.
