Virtual Events Coming Up:
June 3, 2021 - Global Indigenous Solidarity & Human Rights Working Committee (First Meeting)
Are you looking to join a group of women who want to make long-term Global Indigenous Solidarity and Human Rights action plans for awareness and education in BC? It's difficult to practice 'business as usual' if you're human right now. This year thanks to social media, we have learned of the many many current human rights atrocities that are happening around us. We are focused on leadership and professional development but also at our last Board meeting, we had a chance to collectively decide that we are committed to creating critical and just leaders for a better tomorrow. If your heart has been as heavy as our, and you are looking for a group of Muslim women in BC (or even globally) to create dialogue and long term actions plans to create awareness and education, please join our first meeting of our Global Indigenous Solidarity and Human Rights Working Committee. It is a member only meeting, so if you're interested in joining this and are not a member please sign up or contact us for a free sponsored membership.

Due to COVID-19, all in person events are temporarily on hiatus. Our events include:
Ringleaders Conference is an annual professional development and networking conference for women in Vancouver. We feature a panel of powerhouse professional women in Vancouver (The Ringleaders Panel) and create dialogue, learning and intimate networking opportunities. Our aim for the event is to promote ringleaders in every industry in Vancouver so that we can showcase and celebrate how women in Vancouver are living big and leading now. The conference includes light refreshments, networking activities and workshops in addition to the panel.
VMW Awards Gala is a night to celebrate Muslim Women in Vancouver. This red carpet evening entails a 3-course meal, mocktail bar and photo exhibition alongside an elegant award presentation, lively local entertainment and networking. Awards are given in 10 categories and nominations are accepted online.
