At this year’s International Women’s Day Conference at SFU Woodward’s, there stood a cherry blossom tree decorated by green paper leaves. On these leaves were the names of the people – mothers, sisters, friends, and mentors – who have had an influential role in the lives of the attendees. As I thought about my cherry blossom tree contribution, the first name that came to my mind was YWiB SFU.

YWiB SFU is a university chapter of the Young Women in Business (YWiB) network, a non-profit society for emerging female leaders in Western Canada. The network acts as a central forum to connect ambitious young women in their quest to develop their professional and personal selves by providing them with a wealth of opportunities, resources, and support. YWiB SFU brings together over 100 of the university’s most talented minds and passionate hearts, from a range of faculties, and strives to empower their members by guiding them in learning new skills and perspectives, exploring their interests, finding their passion, making a difference, and building their stories on the way to reaching their full potential in their careers and lives.
