This year, for the 11th Anniversary, we are planning nothing short of an amazing day to celebrate "Herstory"!

The Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce and the Waterloo Region Small Business Centre are thrilled to announce that the 2017 Inspiring Women Event will be held on September 28th!

This event is designed to motivate, inspire, connect and celebrate women in business, professionals, entrepreneurs and corporate leadership. Since its inception in 2006, over 7,000 women have participated in this unique day of learning, sharing experiences and information, acquiring new contacts, networking with peers and learning from the experts.

Last year we were excited to share this speaker line-up of leading Canadian Women: Bonnie Brooks, Vice Chairman of Hudson's Bay Company, Tracy Moore, Host of Citytv's CityLine, Sarah Davis, CAO of Loblaw's, Tonia Jahshan, Founder and President of Steeped Tea and Dini Petty, Canadian Broadcast Icon. Details for this year's speakers coming soon!!

We will be hosting a Dress for Success Drive and ask attendees to donate business appropriate clothing, shoes, and accessories to help empower local women entering the workforce.  Donations are accepted by The Green Door. Over 500 items of clothing were collected last year including dozens of shoes, purses and accessories! All donations are greatly appreciated - Thank You!
