Network of Empowered Women Conference
17th - 20th March 2022  

The Network of Empowered Women 2022 Conference is a four-day annual national conference taking place at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise that brings together 100 student delegates from across Canada with inspiring leaders from a multitude of sectors in the Alberta and Canadian community.

Hear From Past Delegates...



2021 Delegate

Dietetics & Nutrition

University of Alberta

“I’ve been a NEW Delegate from 2019-2021 and got to witness NEW from different lenses: from the majesty of the Fairmont Hotel, to when it was cancelled due to COVID, and attending NEW’s first online conference. While it’s amazing to witness a small group of inspiring women do the work of 100, what is truly transformational is the energy they bring to us delegates and the people around them. Words feel inadequate to describe what NEW means to me (I’d need a full page), especially as 2021 was my last conference. It changed my life; I would not be the same woman I am today had it not been for NEW. Hopefully I’ll get to be a speaker one day as a way to pay it forward for what NEW has done for me. The messages, memories, and moments are ones that I will continually treasure”



2019 Delegate

Former Student's Union President

University of Alberta

“I’ve attended the NEW Conference two times, and each time left with a rejuvenated sense of self. It’s not every day that you get to be surrounded by a passionate group of like-minded individuals from across the country and the NEW Executive Team goes above and beyond to ensure our conversations are actioned-packed. Representation in leadership is so important and the NEW Conference features strong female leaders that we otherwise would not have known about. NEW has given me the tools to effectively use my voice, and I only hope that I can give back through constantly em- powering those around me to find their voice and letting it echo.”



2019 Delegate

Accounting & Computer Science

University of Alberta

"What is the corporate world going to look like post #MeToo? What role should men play? What does it mean to be an ally? These are the sort of questions my generation has to wrestle with. This conference tackles these tough questions head on. Listening to the conversations I would not normally be privy to was an honour. The breadth of speakers was beyond inspiring. Our generation wants to usher in a new kind of leadership, one not based on stereotypical traits, but rather on empathy, emotional intelligence, and true courage. It was an absolute privilege to attend the Network of Empowered Women Conference that is laying the groundwork for this new form of leadership."
