What we're about
Are you a female or female-identifying entrepreneur or businesswoman? Do you sometimes wish you knew more people in your community to share your experience with? Collaborate with? Do business with? Then this night is for you: a professional women's event dedicated to lady hustlas like you in beautiful Chinatown. There will be wine. As you're probably well aware, our little city is home to an impressive number of "femmepreneurs" across a multitude of industries. Victoria also happens, according to BC Business, to come first place in Canada for gender equality in terms of economic security and leadership categories (that's still far from a 50/50 split, btw—we're talking 73 cents to the dollar, babes).
It's Women Inc.'s goal to unite Victoria's women in business under one roof for fun that facilitates conversation, collaboration, friendship, and perhaps greater organization among us. We have a lot of knowledge, a lot of connections, and a lot to give—we're creators, growers, and nurturers, after all—so why not feed these energies back into our own community, where we can all see them grow—and influence where the growth goes while we're at it?
The inaugural event will be a social one, loosely structured and with emphasis on connection.
