ABOUT US

Join us at The Women’s Summit presented by The Honest Talk, the leading platform in Canada for engaging women in conversations on life, leadership, and personal growth. 

After an initial sold-out event in 2023, we are back — bigger and better than ever! 

Taking place this fall in beautiful downtown Ottawa, The Women’s Summit will bring together hundreds of women from across Canada for meaningful conversations about the issues that inform and shape our everyday lives.

 

This full-day event — built by women for women — goes beyond traditional panel discussions and advice; it’s an outlet where we tackle difficult conversations, delve into taboo topics, and champion women’s issues and empowerment. 

Together, we inspire, lead, and connect to build stronger networks, enhance resilience, and unlock our full potential. 
 
Join us October 4 at the Shaw Centre in the heart of Canada’s capital for an unforgettable day of networking, learning, and fun!
