  • Guests receive intentional invitations, strategic referrals and personal introductions.  We pride ourselves in quality and calibre.

Meet our Event Caterer, Executive Private Chef & Culinary Explorer, Shirley Lang of Kitchens of Distinction.

Background |  PowHERhouse Media is setting out to become the next ESPN for women!

What ESPN has done for sport, PowHERhouse will do for women.

In 2000, Charlene SanJenko left her career as a National Marketing Manager for a privately-held national investment firm and set out to build a brokerage house of her own – and Media House – a powerful catalyst that fuels efforts, places muscle behind missions and provides profile, podiums and a nation-wide platform for Canadian women.

You see, women are up to incredible, EPIC work in this world.

We deeply crave to be seen, known, and heard… acknowledged, recognized and celebrated for the LEADERS we are because of WHO we are and how we SHOW UP in our everyday lives.

Who is mainstream media celebrating?  We know we can do better – and we are!

We’re redefining women’s media with a model that is multi-dimensional, interactive, inclusive, and fully integrated – by women, for women, about women.

PowHERhouse Media provides what’s been missing up to this point – a VOICE; VISIBILITY for the ‘everyday woman’ who quietly and now not-so-quietly is changing this world.  We demonstrate what is possible and inspire others to Find Their Voice and Take Their Lead, creating a powHERful ripple of IMPACT.
