Women to Watch: Kelowna Chamber celebrates achievements

The women chose for this feature will share their thoughts on some hard-hitting questions.

The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce and Crowe MacKay LLP, in conjunction with the Kelowna Capital News, have been bringing to public attention 20 women to watch in our business community.

Each of the women chose for this feature will be featured on an interactive panel sharing their thoughts on some hard-hitting questions at an event called Women to Watch taking place Tuesday, Oct. 27, at Hannah’s on the downtown waterfront.

“Whether you are an emerging leader or someone who is already established in your field, this is an event that everyone will be able to take something away from,” said Caroline Grover, CEO of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce.

“We are so delighted to offer such a unique learning experience and cannot wait to see the synergies that will form when bringing together so many Okanagan leaders.”

This event marks the wrap of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce’s Women to Watch profile series in the Capital News, sponsored by Crowe MacKay, citing influential women leaders throughout the Okanagan to help foster and encourage the next generation of female leaders.

Tickets to the event are $20 and can be purchased online at www.kelownachamber.org or info@kelownachamber.org.

The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce adds that men are also encouraged to attend this event as well.
