We are excited to announce that one of North America's largest gender diversity conferences will return to Vancouver this fall! 

Now in its sixth year, We For She 2019 will focus on the theme of Connecting for Change. This interactive conference will bring together influencers, business and community leaders, and hundreds of students from across British Columbia to forge meaningful and lasting connections.

Our end goal is to increase diversity in leadership roles and pave the way for a more equal and shared future.

Join us at We For She and be a part of the movement for positive change!
