Women in Business Conference 2020

Event Details

Join us on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 for the 12th Annual Women in Business Conference

Proudly supported by BMO Financial Group | Organized by the Women’s Business Network of Ottawa

The 12th Annual Women in Business Conference, in celebration of International Women’s Day, will be held on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 9 am – 4 pm at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre.

This year’s conference is proudly supported by our Title Sponsor, BMO Financial Group, and is being organized by the Women’s Business Network of Ottawa, with the support of WIBC Founder, Sandra Tisiot.

Founded in 2007/2008 by Sandra Tisiot and Eastern Ontario Women in Finance, the Women in Business Conference (WIBC) has established itself as the premiere must-attend conference for women in Ottawa.

With sold-out crowds of over 500 participants, this conference is dedicated to the working women from all careers and life stages. The conference is grounded on four key pillars: Connect, Celebrate, Inspire & Learn. It is about giving women a special and unique day. Initially geared toward women in business from the financial services, it has become much more than that, opening its door to entrepreneurs, executives and professionals, as well as government personnel.

Since inception, the WIBC has remained fiercely committed to its four key pillars – Connect, Celebrate, Inspire & Learn. And in doing so, this gathering has also become a respite for women who all work so hard for their success, it’s an opportunity to recharge, revitalize and hit the reset button in both their personal and professional lives.

Each year the conference gives back to the community by contributing to a local charity and for the last 10 years has supported the Suits-Me program, an initiative of the Women’s Mental Health Program at The Royal.

Sandra Tisiot has hosted for the past 11 years and has worked the stage effortlessly. The 2020 production will see a new host as Sandra hands over the reins to the Women’s Business Network. The day includes a sold-out tradeshow, plus tremendous corporate and sponsorship support. It is a day of contagious energy leaving all those who attend invigorated once again.
