Kelowna Women in Business (KWIB) was established in 1993 as a not-for-profit organization created in order to give a voice to Kelowna businesswomen, whether they be professionals, run their own businesses, or work for others. Our aim is to offer as many networking opportunities as possible to all Kelowna area women and to promote one another's businesses. We hold interesting and enjoyable social events where both members and the general public are welcome to attend.
Our monthly gatherings alternate between an evening dinner one month and a noontime luncheon the following. We meet once a month in January, February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. In June we host a special charity event to raise funds for our chosen charity. Our total charity donations are in excess of $50,000.00 in the past eight years. Our chosen charity is always selected from the Okanagan to support those in our own community. For December a Christmas Mingle is held so all our members and guests can socialize and celebrate their successes for the year.
