Rural Women in Business Conference presented by connectFirst Credit Union
The Crossfield and Airdrie Chambers of Commerce are proud to work together to bring the Rural Women in Business conference to our communities and beyond!
The Rural Women in Business Conference is created for entrepreneurial rural women who are passionate about developing and growing vibrant, sustainable businesses.
The theme this year is RECHARGE... and instead of an in-person event in Crossfield, it will be virtual this year! Our format will remain mostly the same with inspiring and informative workshops from business experts, a dynamic keynote speaker - Dr. Jody Carrington, networking opportunity and more!
The RWIB Conference has a proven track record of bringing women together to provide them with the tools, strategies and connections for the evolving businesses and lives. See you there!

A FEW THINGS TO EXPECT Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jody Carrington is a Clinical Psychologist who has spent most of her career talking about the vital importance of connection. Growing up on a farm in rural Alberta, and after 13 years of post-secondary education, she took her first job at the Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary. During her 10 years there Jody learned the most about relationships and the vital importance of connection. Today, she is back living in a rural setting by Olds, Alberta, managing a private practice, raising a family, and travelling and speaking around North America about relationships, connection and her 2019 book, "Kids These Days: A Game Plan For (Re)Connecting With Those We Teach, Lead & Love."
The core of everything Jody speaks and writes about comes down to this: we are wired to do hard things. We can do those hard things so much easier when we remember this: we are wired for connection. Workshop Facilitators: Your choice of two workshops to attend!
