Featured leaders series

Interviews to be streamed, downloaded, or read

To find inspiration, you don’t have to look far. Local leaders are making waves in business, tech, investment, media, and beyond. We’re determined to tell their stories and share their experiences – to laugh with them and learn from them. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the Power of Why Podcast.

Host Naomi Haile is sitting down (virtually) with IWW’s featured leaders to unpack their “why” and talk about the fuel that keeps them driving forward. Tune in to each episode or take time to digest each article. They’re here for you. These women have a lot to say and we’re here for it!

Why "Womxn"?

The word “womxn” is an alternative term to the English language word “women.” We use this term to explicitly include those who identify as women, transgender women, women of colour and non-binary individuals. This choice supports our concerted effort to create a culture of belonging.
