"Occasionally we are presented with an opportunity to be surrounded by intelligent, ambitious, like-minded women who share a belief in the power of women helping women. WNORTH offered an unparalleled and intimate opportunity to build meaningful connections and be engaged by top-tier speakers. The "Connect Dinner" at Araxi was especially memorable, allowing an opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with powerhouse women and build lasting relationships"

"WNORTH is a really special event. Whether you're looking for some inspiration, to connect with people, or just needing a confidence boost career-wise, WNORTH should be no.1 on your bucket-list. If it wasn't for WNORTH, I wouldn't have connected with my new boss so well, and I wouldn't be working in the right role today. WNORTH gave me the confidence to try something different, and move out of my comfort zone."

Lucy GloverProduction Supervisor, Origin Design + Communications

"WNORTH was the most impactful and self-reflective leadership conference I’ve ever been to. The intimate feel of the event and the community of openness we were able to share was life-inspiring. I’ve made some great connections who are holding me accountable to being the woman I want to be. I highly recommend this to any other women on the rise who are looking for a time to do some self-work!"
