We are so excited to offer the ninth annual Niagara Leadership Summit for Women on April 1st, 2023 at Brock University! Tickets are on sale NOW through the Ticket section of this website! This year we will be exploring the theme Reunite, Recharge & Recreate the Idea of Leadership. 

This year, the summit will allow for empowering women leaders in the Niagara community to come together in person with like-minded individuals to learn, grow, and empower one another for months to come.


The Niagara Leadership Summit for Women presents an inclusive environment to encourage and celebrate women leaders in our community and opens the conversation surrounding women’s issues in Niagara. The event is hosted by the YWCA Niagara Region.

Everyone, regardless of gender, should have the courage and confidence to be the leader they are and want to be. Leadership is not about being ‘at the top’—there are leaders all around us who make a difference every day.

This event offers many valuable opportunities for women leaders and allies to connect, share common goals and evaluate common challenges, and network with like-minded community leaders.
