About Us

Giving a Speech

Twenty-five years ago, QWIL began as a women in financial markets conference that aimed to empower and inspire young women to pursue their career goals in this field. As we have evolved, QWIL has expanded to include a wide diversity of industries, engaging voices across faculties, universities, and genders.

 

Due to the unusual year behind us, we’re excited to take QWIL in a different direction and pivot to running internally, with no conference. We see this not as a setback, but an opportunity which will allow us to take on more projects than ever and achieve our mandate on a wider scale.

 

Although this year has looked different, we are more committed than ever to empowering women in leadership environments to achieve their full potential, to engaging men and women alike in actionable solutions to achieving gender-based equity, and actively working to create opportunities for those traditionally excluded from such conversations.
