Episode #68 with Santa Claus
Episode 23 with Gr. 5 & 6 Students from Argyle School
Donna Crooks’ personal vision is to make a difference in the lives of others through her work and in her life. She is the Founder & Chief at Brain Snacks Co, a platform business with a mission to help close the gender gap by supporting women with core services, like study and workspace, supervised play for children, networking, career coaching, and professional development.
Donna’s career accelerated early. Despite her success, she found she lost ground in her career when she started her family. When she returned to work from her first two maternity leaves, her position was gone both times. Donna began to focus on the necessity for women to have choices, financial freedom, autonomy and capacity to weather adversity.
Thinking of this problem, she began to wonder how she could diversify her own career and financial stability while designing a business that would help women be successful in managing all the demands of work and family. Thus, the idea for Brain Snacks Co was born.
The Brain Snacks Co experience is all about choices for women from all walks of life, mothers and careerists, women on maternity leave, Indigenous women, women of colour, newcomers, and members of our LGBTQ+ communities. Even the food is inclusive, offering choices for vegan and gluten-free customers as well.
Men are most welcome too!
