The WNORTH Conference, which is gearing up for its third year, is a global gathering of women on the rise. Heather Odendaal, the brains behind it, is on a mission to grow a global community of women by helping them shape their careers as they evolve into executive leadership roles. She does this by hosting a conference in Whistler as well as Connect Dinners all around North America.
“I am building the WNORTH brand to support these driven, high-potential women across Canada, the U.S. and beyond,” said Odendaal. “In Canada, we have 57 per cent of women in middle management positions, yet only 14 per cent at the executive level. We have to focus on the women mid-career in order to change these statistics.”
