Kelowna Women’s Day

Kelowna Women's Day 2023 is a one-day conference on Thursday, March 30th, 2023 at the Kelowna Innovation Centre. It is aimed to empower the community with their individual skill sets and create something big from within. The programming is set to invite a lineup of women in leadership as well as a hands-on workshop experience delivered by the #IamRemarkable team. This event is completely not-for-profit. All the proceeds will go towards charities of the community’s choosing.

Update: Thanks to our Platinum Sponsor, Adaptavist, we're able to cut the cost from $135 so anyone can enjoy the conference without the financial burden.

Note: We're also interested to partner with local communities to recruit some volunteers to support our effort. Please feel free to reach out for more info.

Liza and Sherry met remotely over the #IamRemarkable Week as Gold-Tier facilitators in March 2022. The #IamRemarkable initiative is powered by Google to encourage the underrepresented groups in self promotion and challenge the perceptions towards sharing their own accomplishments.
