About YWiB

Purpose 

YWiB provides a central forum to connect ambitious young women from across educational fields, careers, and industries. We believe that building leadership skills and a personal network can help you reach your fullest personal and professional potential. YWiB supports this through events and programs that focus on providing members with the skills and support to achieve success on their own terms and become engaged members in their communities.

Calgary Chapter

some text

The idea of a Calgary chapter materialized in August 2015. For a professional city as diverse as Calgary, it was a surprise that this chapter was not formed sooner.

Calgary is the birthplace and home to a large portion of its working population. For many others, it was the attractive and opportunistic city that was worth moving miles for.

The Executive Team came together in the winter of 2015 through their combined vision. Building relationships through inter-disciplinary functions was key to succeeding in the business world. However sometimes it is hard to look beyond the walls of one's cubicles to network and make meaningful connections. Whilst most workplaces had women/leadership/executive/network groups that supported women in the workplace, it was sometimes hard to find relevant and engaging content.

After many months, the launch of YWiB Calgary successfully brought together female professionals from all parts of the City. With the expansion into Calgary, YWiB started its journey to becoming a national brand.

We hope to be able to make a meaningful impact in our communities by inspiring future women leaders.
