“WNORTH has been an integral part of my life (especially during the pandemic). It’s a place of community and connectivity with incredible women across various industries and sectors. I found their Leadership Mastermind sessions to be immensely helpful with regards to networking, advice, and learning something new in every session. I highly recommend that anyone who wants to grow and meet some amazing people, signs up to join WNORTH”.Sarah Shafey (PMP)®, CGEIT Program Transformation Assurance Senior Manager at PwC Canada
WNORTH was a wonderful experience from the opening reception to the closing message. The speakers shared relevant, diverse insights, and I have pages of notes filled with takeaways to implement in my career journey. I had the chance to make connections with and learn from women in different companies, industries, and geographical locations than myself, which I believe contributes to making me a more well-rounded leader. I can easily say that WNORTH is one of the best conferences I’ve attended.Becky DeJonkerStrategy and Planning, Americas Architectures HQ, Cisco Systems

“I’ve attended the WNORTH Conference in Whistler for 3 years in a row and it’s been a rewarding experience both personally and professionally. I attend many conferences that offer great speakers but WNORTH has the added advantage of attracting a room of incredible peers. The social fabric of WNORTH compels networking, sharing and learning from each other. I walk away each year with valuable new connections and remain in close contact with many of them. It’s a pretty special experience.”Ashley Willard BaumanSenior Director at Rennie Marketing Systems
