An OWIT-Toronto and OWIT-Ottawa members and networking event


Join OWIT-Toronto and OWIT-Ottawa in celebrating this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD)! This year’s theme for IWD in Canada is “Women Inspiring Women”.

In the spirit of celebrating inspiring leading women in business and international trade, on March 10th you are all invited to join a panel of seasoned women leaders and experts in business and international trade for an engaging discussion. Join us as we learn from women who have shattered glass ceilings in male-dominated industries and are paving the way for other women, lessons on how they overcame pandemic obstacles to finding creative ways to grow their businesses, as well as what drives them and the choices they continue to make to advance their businesses.

This is the perfect time to celebrate the resilience, achievements and contributions of women in business and in international trade.
