A day in the Canadian Armed Forces
On Saturday, June 18, Prima Mabonzo participated in the “Military for Women” event at the Drummondville Armory with BPW Montreal.
Prima Mabonzo, Information Technology Consultant, Founder of Kisina Déco and Membership Vice-President of BPW Canada, received the Claude-Masson Award in recognition of her volunteer involvement with BPW Canada and Montreal.
The purpose of this event is to visit the various military trades and to provide information on the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF).
The women of BPW Montreal had the opportunity to meet soldiers at work, visit military vehicles and spend a day with the Canadian Armed Forces to learn more.
