Women in Business

Women in Business operates under the umbrella of the Kāpiti Chamber. It provides networking for women who own their own business or those who work within an organisation, and those who support women in business.

There is a charge to attend to cover costs with a differential fee structure for members and non members.

All paying events will operate a full refund seven days before any event and no refund thereafter with substitutions welcomed.  No shows will be invoiced if a fee is required yet not paid for some reason.

Their purpose is to:

  • Support business women to grow and expand their business
  • Provide an opportunity to meet with like-minded women
  • Tap into support, knowledge and experience
  • Provide personal and professional development including inspirational guest speakers
  • Opportunity to profile and network their business

In 2019 Kapiti Chamber Women in Business and Kapiti Rotary were honoured with winning an IWD 2019 Best Practice Award.

More groups than ever celebrated International Women’s Day and a record number of men worldwide were actively engaged in supporting women’s equality. Groups everywhere forged the IWD 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign theme to celebrate women’s achievements, call for a more gender-balanced world, and implement tangible action to drive women’s equality.

Over 300 groups entered the IWD 2019 Best Practice Competition showcasing their impressive achievements and explaining how they engaged audiences and communities to help accelerate women’s equality.  You can read our case study here and congratulations to everyone involved in helping this fine achievement happen >>
