2021 WBE Canada Annual Conference: Moving Forward Together

November 9, 2021 - November 10, 2021


WBE Canada’s Annual Conference is Canada’s leading event bringing together corporate and government leaders, procurement professionals and women-owned businesses to connect, inspire and celebrate achievements in supplier diversity. After months of reacting and adjusting to change, this year’s conference looks forward, bringing together champions from both sides of the supplier diversity conversation to share what we’ve learned, the best practices that we’ve adopted and what we must do to build for the future together.

This year we are delivering our conference ONLINE – to keep our community safe and healthy while still providing necessary training, networking and business conversation opportunities.
