Are you an established and influential business leader, entrepreneur, or professional in your community?

Our Leaders Lunch experience supports women like yourself, who have leaned in to their career and are achieving success at a high level. This is an exclusive monthly event curated for the established and influential business leader, entrepreneur and professional. 


Imagine a room filled with like-minded, like-hearted, high-achieving women who have one common mission - to be the best version of themselves. This private lunch brings leading women together.

This 1.5-hour event features a keynote talk from a female leader who has made influence in her career, community and business. She is committed to sharing her journey and inspires others to step into their own. You will immerse yourself within the Calgary business community over lunch and connection.
