Established in 2017, the Vancouver Chapter dedicates itself to empowering women to take action. We provide support and opportunities for our members to connect through our lunch and learn roundtables, evening workshops, seminars and speaker panels, monthly email newsletters and our Lean In Circle Managers assisting companies to set up their own internal Lean In Circles. We also proactively engage with other women’s organizations in Vancouver to amplify our efforts together to empower women. If you are part of a women’s cause and would like to work together please reach out to us!
"Lean In Canada has provided me with an amazing opportunity to connect with individuals from diverse backgrounds and experiences in a great venue."
