Inspire 2021

Celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship in Southern Alberta

In anticipation of Women’s Entrepreneurship Day on November 19, 2021, we invite you to join WESTEM for the “Inspire 2021: Celebrating Women’s Entrepreneurship in southern Alberta” conference on the mornings of November 17 and 18th. Join us as we welcome women entrepreneurs from around the region for authentic talk about the challenges and rewards of business ownership in southern Alberta. Come and be INSPIRED by your peers as we work together to continue to raise each other up! 

The theme of our on-line conference is INSPIRE. As women in rural southern Alberta we do not have to look far for INSPIRATION from our colleagues, mentors and advisors. We are excited to provide this opportunity for women entrepreneurs to come together, learn from each other, and INSPIRE each other towards future and on-going success as our authentic selves. Join our panel discussions, networking sessions, and join us as we welcome our keynote speaker Kiersten Mohr. You will leave INSPIRED, connected to amazing resources and ready to be an INSPIRATION in your community.
