The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Crowe MacKay recognized that the Okanagan community of women leaders was looking for dynamic opportunities which would encourage women and women’s mentorship activities.

“Our involvement in women’s leadership comes as no surprise; just look at our partner portfolio. We strongly believe in encouraging women in our community to prosper and are delighted to be able to bring such high quality speakers here to facilitate leadership development.” said Don Turri, CPA, FCA, managing director, Crowe MacKay LLP.
