Lean In Ottawa - Lean in Canada

About Our Network

This network was born of a mission to empower women in the Ottawa community to lead, succeed, and live fulfilling lives. We hope to make the Ottawa network a place where women can be unapologetically ambitious. Where we can give voice to our dreams and find the encouragement to start chasing them. A place for sharing ideas, gaining skills, seeking advice, and showing solidarity. Most of all, a place where we help each other become our very best selves. Whatever your goal—whether you’re working toward a promotion or building your confidence, entering a new industry or starting a business— the events powered by Lean In Ottawa can help you get there.  Stop by, lean in and join us in the conversation.

Join our community by becoming a Lean In member!

 

“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”

- Laura De Filippis, Chief Human Resources Officer for Glen Dimplex Americas
