Join The Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT-Toronto) to celebrate our 20th Anniversary Gala and Awards ceremony. The evening dinner, to be held at the Toronto Region Board of Trade, will feature an accomplished panel of OWIT-Toronto’s original Board members and our founder. They’ll share why they joined OWIT, their journeys from 20 years ago to now, and their take on topical trade issues of the day…along with insights on the best opportunities for women.

This is sure to be a lively moderated discussion that will showcase the different career paths of dynamic and successful women. You’ll walk away inspired not only by their stories and tips but also by the recipients of our annual awards honouring the achievements of outstanding women in trade. Plus you’ll enjoy the kind of high-calibre networking with like-minded women that OWIT is known for.
