The evening will feature a panel of three Indigenous women in Winnipeg’s business community.

Joining our panel are:
Cassandra Carreiro, Owner of Sharecuterie [our venue host]
Founded in 2020 by Cassandra Carreiro, a psychiatric nurse turned food artist, Sharecuterie is a locally-sourced, artisanal charcuterie shop and cafe located in Winnipeg. Sharecuterie is proudly Indigenous and woman owned. Sharecuterie uses board items that are either locally sourced or purchased from other small local businesses in Winnipeg and other parts of Manitoba. When you support Sharecuterie you are not just supporting one small local business, you are supporting multiple.
“Being an Indigenous woman in business has been empowering and healing for me. It has given me the opportunity to connect with other Indigenous entrepreneurs and develop a sense of community and strength. It gives me hope that we as Indigenous people are not only still here, but we are thriving and succeeding despite all the barriers. Regarding being in the food and specifically “charcuterie” industry, I love taking up space where people wouldn’t normally expect to see Indigenous people doing so.” – Cassandra

“Being an Indigenous woman in business, particularly as a Métis from the Red River Nation means embodying resilience, strength, and cultural pride while navigating the challenges and opportunities within the business world. It means honouring the rich heritage, history, and traditions of the Métis people, while also striving for economic empowerment, sustainable growth, and positive impact within one’s community. Being an Indigenous woman in business provides an opportunity to challenge stereotypes, promote inclusivity, and contribute to the advancement and representation of Indigenous voices in the entrepreneurial landscape.” – Andréanne
