Three Consecutive Days of Immersive Growth & Impact to Supercharge Your Path, Purpose & Performance as a Canadian Leader.
PowHERhouse Women’s Leadership Accelerator is pleased to announce the WOMEN BUILT2SCALE Leadership Accelerator, an opportunity for Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to engage in a disruptive dialogue on creative, meaningful and significant growth for women's leadership in Canada by 2025.

"I am still thinking about it [Regina event] and following up on new connections that I made because of the lunch and reception. I feel you have created a refreshing approach to this conversation about women in leadership; I especially appreciate the focus and integration on women leaders from all sectors - corporate, entrepreneurship, public sector, politics."
