Take a peak at what took place:

We mean business

On March 8, the world celebrates International Women's Day. From March 1 – 12 (and beyond!), we ran the 3rd annual International Women's Week: IWW 2021.

60+ collaborators joined forces under the shared goal - to inspire, equip, and empower more women in professional fields. Through an integrated wave of action, our region delivered a series of events and initiations. Thousands of participants came together virtually. It was an incredible success and that is because of you – our community.

Now, the countdown to next year is on. Until then, stay engaged and stay informed.

We are here for all women

When we use the term women, we are referring to all individuals who identify as women. This includes women of colour, transgender women, and women who are gender non-conforming who have historically and systemically been excluded from mainstream women’s programming and opportunities. We are making a concerted effort to prioritize equity. Our goal is to ensure that anyone who would like to access our programs and services truly feels that they are welcome and belong.

Information is power

Our mission is to help create a critical mass of successful women leaders from every walk of life who make a significant impact on our economy and society.

To do this, it’s essential to reflect on where we are today. Here is some of what we know:
