Dress for Success Ottawa’s fourth annual All Women Empowered (A.W.E) professional development conference is back again for 2019!

This year, the conference will focus on STRONG WOMEN. STRONG LEADERS. STRONG COMMUNITIES. because we believe that by empowering Ottawa women and giving them the tools to succeed, Dress for Success can help to build a strong economy and community for everyone.

With 200 participants expected and an exciting line-up of speakers, you will have plenty of opportunities to meet new people, grow your network, and learn from some of Ottawa’s most inspiring and experienced professionals. We are also excited that all participants will once again be able to customize their own conference program for the day by choosing from four learning streams:

ENTREPRENEURSHIP: Do you want to start a business and be your own boss? This stream is for you. You’ll get practical tips and advice that will help you understand small business financing, being a leader, and creating a supportive business network.

JOB HUNTING: These workshops will help those of you looking for a job or seeking to move into a job that is more in line with your career goals. You’ll learn effective job-hunting skills, networking, selling yourself, taking control of your career, workplace culture, and more.

PERSONAL BRANDING: Let our experts help you build your confidence and stand out from the crowd. In these workshops, we’ll cover networking, how to manage your online presence, and all the tools you need to make the right first impression with your wardrobe.

WORKING IN THE TECH SECTOR: Considering a career in the technology sector? Did you know that tech jobs are on the rise in Ottawa? Come hear about Ottawa’s booming tech scene and how you can take advantage of these opportunities. The workshops will also cover which skills tech companies are looking for and all about tech company culture.
