The YWiB SFU International Women’s Day Conference is our contribution to the global celebration of women’s achievements. It is an annual event that brings the SFU and Great Vancouver communities together, and aims to both inspire and equip emerging female leaders to achieve success on their own terms. We believe that through understanding how to leverage their strengths, young leaders will be better equipped to pursue paths that they have a passion for.
The conference theme this year, following with the worldwide theme, is “Make It Happen.” Focusing on the transition from university to beyond, but relevant for all stages, our goal is to help build the foundational skills that will help delegates make an impact in their careers and community. The itinerary this year includes two keynote speakers, three interactive workshop options, and an intimate panel. There is also an expo, which showcases amazing social businesses and organizations. Delegates will have the opportunity to network with peers and professionals. Be prepared to learn something new!
