We hold interactive and engaging monthly gatherings co-created with featured guests from across Canada and beyond that include breakouts and the opportunity to connect with like-minded women from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. These virtual events are free and open to members and to anyone interested in checking us out. Topics include: “Embracing Feminine Leadership Qualities: Challenges and Lessons Learned”, “Creating and Fueling Your Dream Project through Sponsorship and Collaboration”, and “Exploring and Embodying Inclusive Leadership”.

Our next gathering is on December 20th for a special Holiday and End of Year Celebration. Everyone is welcome to us to Celebrate the year that was, to Connect with like minded change-makers, and to Visualize the year ahead.
Seeds of Change
Seeds of Change is an opportunity for our member change-makers to grow ideas into action plans. In a safe circle, you bring your idea for a project or business idea, and a question that you want to explore.
For 15 minutes, you’ll have the benefit of clarifying questions, guidance, and possible connections with other members to help you take your project to the next level. Come back each quarter to celebrate your progress and receive the support you need to keep the momentum going.
For us, a qualifying project is any initiative that supports the five pillars of FWOCC:
HUMANITY – ECONOMY – ENVIRONMENT – HEALTH – EDUCATION
It could be a volunteer project, an offering from your business, or a new program you want to bring into your organization.
We welcome all members who have an idea or would simply like to support others who do and provide valuable feedback. Roles at the event will include:
Seed Holder – Come with your idea for impact and a question
Nurturer – Come with your wisdom and connections to support the seed holder
Witness – Come hold space and be inspired by the conversation
Collective Wisdom Circles
These circles provide opportunities for members to share their wisdom and learn from one another in a safe space that is hosted by a member with facilitation skills and expertise in the related topic.
The next Wisdom Circle is planned to start in early 2024. Stay tuned for more information.
Webinars, Workshops and Retreats
Workshops, webinars and retreats on a variety of topics of interest to members are offered. These “events” are currently all virtual. They provide an opportunity for members to showcase their expertise, connect with, and learn from one another.
