The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce, Crowe MacKay, the Kelowna Capital News and KelownaNow have partnered to bring you a series that highlights Women in leadership.

The Women to Watch program is a way to celebrate and recognize influential women leaders throughout the Okanagan. By showcasing women in leadership positions, our goal is to help foster and encourage the next generation of female leaders.

If you know an influential woman whose story could encourage the next generation of emerging leaders, we want to hear about them!

For any further inquiries, please contact us.
