Who We Are
Looking to stay connected with like-minded business women?
The Kitchener Waterloo Business Women's Association is a community of career women representing a variety of business interests in Waterloo region.
Our members bring unique skills, talents and personalities to the group, making it an ideal place to learn, grow and make new connections!
Each member represents one business category (i.e. one hairdresser, one veterinarian, and so on).
The KWBWA is dedicated to building mutually beneficial relationships, offering opportunities for professional and personal growth, and to network.
WELCOME to our newest members: Diane Krompart, Colleen Andruszkiewicz!
Come and see what the KWBWA has to offer you!
