The First Iranian-Canadian Women’s Leadership Conference

July 29, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

The First Iranian-Canadian Women's Leadership Conference

Tirgan is collaborating with the Iranian American Women Foundation (IAWF) to host the first Canadian Leadership Conference with a focus on women with Iranian origins. This event, held at the prestigious Agha Khan Museum, will be IAWF’s first international conference followed by London (UK) in September 2017.

Established as a non-profit organization in 2012, the IAWF aims to empower and inspire Iranian women of all ages and career paths through its Women’s Leadership Conferences and other programs such as Circle of Visionaries, Youth Leadership Conference, Connect Series, and Mentorship program.

Over the past five years, IAWF has hosted sold-out conferences in various cities across the United States, including Washington D.C, San Diego, San Francisco, Beverly Hills, New York City, and Orange County. We are delighted to be bringing this Leadership Conference to Canada for the first time and are hoping for a grand success to enable a continued initiative.

We are proud to have the support of Sharif University of Technology Association (SUTA), Canadian Society of Iranian Engineers and Architects (Mohandes), the Iranian Women’s Organization of Ontario (IWOO), Shabeh Jomeh, and Karafarin Canada Entrepreneurship Network for this event.
