Women United Presents: An Honest Conversation


Rideau Club, 99 Bank Street, Ottawa


March 27, 2023
4:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Join us for an afternoon all about creating community, connections, and honest conversations.

Women United is returning to the Rideau Club for our first in-person event since 2019!

We’re extending our International Women’s Day celebration by inviting you to network with local women leaders and learn from their stories on Monday, March 27 from 4:00 PM–6:30 PM.

As part of this event, we’re thrilled to welcome guest speakers Catherine Clark and Jennifer Stewart, co-hosts of The Honest Talk podcast.

Since launching their podcast in 2020, Catherine and Jennifer have engaged in dozens of honest conversations with women entrepreneurs, business leaders, and professionals about their careers, challenges, aspirations, and lessons learned. The Honest Talk episodes highlight the issues that matter to these women and the solutions they need to improve their lives.

Reflecting on their favourite moments from the podcast, Catherine and Jennifer will lead us in a discussion about the shared experiences of women and trailblazers. Get inspired and ready to engage in your own honest conversations about making a positive impact in your community.

Buy your tickets before February 28 to get the early bird price!

Early bird tickets are $55. After February 28, tickets will be $65. Please note that tickets for Women United members are $50.
All tickets will also include delicious canapes served during the networking portion of our event.
