Women In Business (WIB) 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 for those who support women in business.

Our purpose is to:

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

In March 2021, nearly 250 women attended Kāpiti Chamber’s International Women’s Day lunch at Southward Theatre.

An inspirational event that brought together amazing women from all over the region, the Chamber’s #IWD2021 celebration was uplifting and innovative.


In 2019 Kāpiti Chamber Women in Business and Kāpiti Rotary were honoured to receive an International Women’s Day 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 >>
