One hundred of Canada’s black women to watch, including Windsor’s Joanna Parris, are being honoured by the Canada International Black Women Event Gala.

The inaugural event will be held Saturday, May 23rd at the Hilton in Toronto.

“I am deeply honoured to receive this award,” said Ms. Parris. “It is truly a privilege to be recognized among this group of outstanding women.”

Parris will join a group of women who are recognized as the `ones to watch` in 2015 in media, politics, business, corporate, entertainment and community involvement.

She began her career as a school teacher, immigrating to Canada in 1998. She co-founded the Toronto Chapter of Association of Image Consultants International, has been involved with women entrepreneurs, which led to a managerial position with the Women’s Business Owners of Canada, a six country tour of Europe on behalf of the Canadian Government, trips to South Africa, South America and various Caribbean Islands to work with entrepreneurial women.

Parris founded BOSS Inc (Best Opportunity to Support Self) in 2002, which has evolved into the Etiquette Nanny, to continue with her first love, teaching, and to continue to share her knowledge literacy, personal improvement and etiquette with others.
