Women Entrepreneurs for Social Change will be an intensive, interactive Vancouver based gathering that focuses on ways to lead a successful, socially conscious enterprise. This unique forum offers women from small and large organizations the chance to explore their business challenges in an intimate and inspiring environment drawing on the successful Social Venture Institute (SVI) model. SVI is a practical, problem-solving, alternative “business school” that creates a confidential, supportive and inspiring setting.

We'll dive deep into the heart of business, connecting and learning with other women leading mission-driven businesses and social enterprises.

This intensive will include opportunities to:
• Fine-tune your strategies and build long-lasting relationships with peers and mentors;
• Get direct feedback on your current challenges from a faculty of successful, socially responsible leaders;
• Hear an inspiring “True Confession”—personal story from a leading entrepreneur and her struggle to reach success combining social mission with business.
• Share your experiences and expertise with a group of values-driven business leaders;

This program is for CEOs and leaders of established small companies and non-profit enterprises. Pre-approval is required prior to registration; apply at womensconference@raisedeyebrow.com. Enrollment is limited and priority will be given to second-stage entrepreneurs.

Presented by Pam Chaloult, Managing Director of Renewal and VP of Renewal2 and Lauren Bacon & Emira Mears, co-founders of Raised Eyebrow Web Studio and co-authors of The Boss of You: Everything A Woman Needs to Know to Start, Run, and Maintain Her Own Business.

This is a program of Hollyhock. Hollyhock exists to inspire, nourish and support people who are making the world better.
