This past weekend, something special happened in Toronto. The ‘Your Authentic Life‘ conference brought an eccentric, diverse group of women from around the world to Arta Gallery, where Millie Speaks, a female-focussed travel and speaker series, hosted their inaugural event.
It was a day to connect, learn and celebrate authenticity, vulnerability, and empowerment. There was a morning meditation, an afternoon tea refresh, a ‘Why I Travel’ board, and a comfortable hangout spot where you could lounge on FASHION-branded pillows and flip through our latest issue. Panel discussions and keynotes explored themes like ‘Being You: Let’s Only Talk About What’s Authentic,’ ‘Real Women: Every Day Heroines’ and ‘Live Your Adventure,’ with women having candid conversations about their relationships, careers and journeys of self-discovery.
