Young Women in Business: Beyond Pink

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

If tonight’s Third Tuesday, tomorrow’s CaseCamp or this weekend’s Northern Voice are not your cup of tea, perhaps you’re a young woman in business (or looking to get into the professional world) who just might be interested in another type of conference in Vancouver.


Beyond Pink is the first conference of its kind in Western Canada, and will act as the launch event for the Young Women in Business network (YWiB) in March 2008. The event will feature an interactive workshop series, speaker and panel sessions hosted by individuals with extraordinary backgrounds and experiences, the Connect! Women in Business Tradeshow, a break out luncheon with cross-industry mentors, and a celebratory Gala dinner to wrap up the weekend. [Beyond Pink]

This is the first event YWiB has hosted and was created by two women who are in their final year at UBC, a mix of current student at SFU, Emily Carr, and UBC, recent alumni and other young professionals around the city.

What: Beyond Pink will appeal to ambitious, positive, and forward-thinking young women from all backgrounds and industries. We developed the Young Women in Business network with the notion that we are all in the business of managing our careers and that we require many of the same skills and tools in order to reach our personal and professional potential.

Where: Sheraton Wall Centre, downtown Vancouver, BC
Where: Friday, March 28 & Saturday, March 29, 2008
More Info: The theme on Friday will be “Inside Out”, and on Saturday “Outside In”, visit Beyond Pink for an itinerary.

Registration closes this coming Monday, February 25th, or you could also sign up for the tradeshow portion as there is still some room left.

Update: Final day to register is now MARCH 13TH at 11:59PM

    Hello, is the Beyond Pink conference happening in March of 2009? Are you in need of an events planner? Please let me know. At the very least, I’d love to be on your email list so I don’t miss this event! Sounds great. I’m an events coordinator and promoter and would love to work with you on this event for 2009!
