"In the spring of 2014, a steering committee of twenty executive women created the Kelowna Women's Leadership Network. I am delighted to Chair this new program offered through the Chamber that provides a valuable opportunity for executive women to meet, learn from each other, and offer support to this growing community of leaders. The Women's Leadership Network of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce will support and strengthen the community of women's leaders in the Central Okanagan. This preeminent group of women in leadership combines their resources and support to further the advancement of women in leadership in the community. If you would like further information, please contact me."
Martine Hickman, Chair

We are executive women who value and promote:
  • Career success and advancement
  • The company of stimulating women
  • Women in leadership roles
  • Sharing our knowledge with others through advocacy and networking
  • Development of women in leadership positions
  • The influence of women
  • Sharing ideas, interests, and fun through social interaction and events
The Women's Leadership Network aims to connect women in leadership positions with other likeminded individuals through two streams.
  1. Women’s Leadership Network Steering Committee
  2. Mentorship, storytelling, and idea sharing


Mentorship, Storytelling and Idea Sharing:

We want to support women at all stages of leadership, and by tapping into the expertise of our steering committee, we are able to do so extremely well.

Through different events, mentoring activities, and storytelling piece, we showcase the experience of women leaders, the challenges they’ve faced, and the remarkable journeys that so many women both in the Okanagan Valley and beyond have experienced.

Network, share ideas, and make lasting connections with other leaders in our community - and have some fun while doing it.  

Some of these events and activities include:
