Founded by Mary Cantando, WPO member, nationally recognized expert on the growth of women’s businesses, and successful business owner. The Forums bring together up to 14 non-competitive women’s businesses once a month for 12 months. The Forum members meet for 3 hours of structured up-to-date business education, information, along with accountability and masterminding. There is also a Year 2 quarterly Forum for alumni of the Year 1 Forum.
The Forums were launched in Vancouver in 2014 and launched in Nanaimo in 2015.
