PowHERhouse is committed to increasing the number of Canadian women in key leadership positions by 10% by 2025.

We mobilize strong women to lead in Canada.

PowHERhouse creates opportunities for women leaders in Canada to access what they need to amplify their impact.
  • We know there is a changing conversation about women in leadership in Canada.
  • We have Epic Women Leaders, but in many cases, we don’t see them, we don’t hear about them, we don’t have access to them. They’re not featured and celebrated and therefore their impact isn’t amplified, and we’re changing that.
  • We also have Canadian Women with Epic Leadership potential, but they need to see and hear, and access and connect with the women leaders I just mentioned.  They need opportunities to recognize and catalyze their full potential, and we offer programming designed specifically to do that.

There has been a ground swell for a long time on this topic, and we are thrilled to be mobilizing it to the surface and activating it in real and tangible ways. We continue our work approaching our fifth year through leadership programming, live events and digital media.

BACKGROUND:  In 2000, Charlene SanJenko left her corporate role as National Marketing Manager for an independently owned investment firm and set out to build a Media House for Canada’s most powHERful women.  Almost two decades later, Charlene and her creative + events team with with corporate, academic & individual partners to move the PowHERhouse mission forward.

Why isn’t the conversation in Canada about, hey, we’re going to own the podium on women in business and women entrepreneurs, and let’s just get on it and go for it …. And why wouldn’t we, as a group of leaders – men and women – right now say that by 2025 we’ve got this, we’ve grown the most businesses owned by women, we’ve got the most scaled-up businesses by women, and let’s just get on it.
