Our PWN Meetings take place monthly from September to June each year at the offices of our premiere sponsor, Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP (at 2900 – 550 Burrard Street, Vancouver), from 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
The cost of attending a meeting is $30.00. Throughout the year we also offer special events, the fees for which may differ from our regular meeting fee. We are also happy to offer a special university student rate of $20.00 for regular meetings. Proof of student status is required at the time of registration.
Each monthly networking event includes: drinks, canapés, networking and a presentation from respected business leaders and experts on a variety of topics of interest to women in business. Special conferences and social events are offered from time to time, sometimes presented in partnership with other women’s business organizations.
Currently, the PWN network consists of approximately 1,000 registered members. We are an inclusive membership, and encourage both women and men to participate in our events.
