Lean In Ottawa - Lean in Canada

About Our Network

Our network empowers women in the Ottawa community to live fulfilling lives by inspiring each of us to build our own path to success.

We envision the Ottawa network as the platform for women to be unapologetically ambitious. A place to collaborate, grow skills, and seek advice while embracing our differences. Where we encourage each other to become our very best selves.

Whatever your goal — whether you’re building your confidence, advocating for yourself, or embarking on a new endeavor — Lean In Ottawa can help you get there.  Join us and lean into the conversation.

“The partnership with our organization and Lean In has been a positive collaboration. 50 ways to Fight Bias was an informative and educational experience for our employees. Lean In not only provided us with awareness, but also real-life tools and strategies that can be embedded into our business to create impactful and transformative change with respect to breaking the gender bias”
