WNORTH is a global community of women who are aiming for, or already on, a senior executive leadership track. WNORTH connects top female business leaders in corporate, public and entrepreneurial sectors through an annual Conference, an online community, The Members’ Club, as well as events and programming in six chapter cities; Vancouver, Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, New York and London.
WNORTH’s mission is to develop more women to leading positions in business, and in doing so we will elevate the teams they work in, the families they lead and the communities in which they live.
The WNORTH Connect Dinners allow our members the opportunity to network in an intimate dinner setting. There are a limited number of spots to these dinners, so sign up early! An RSVP reserves your seat and it confirms your commitment to attend. Members will RSVP for free, however you will be responsible for the cost of your dinner and drinks and all guests will settle their individual bill directly with the host venue at the completion of the dinner. If you have RSVP’d and are unable to attend, you will be responsible for a $75 fee if we are unable to fill your spot.
