Westshore Women’s Business Network is business networking just for women.

We are a dynamic networking group for female business owners and career professionals.


Hi, I’m Deb Alcadinho, CEO & Founder of Westshore Women’s Business Network (WWBN).

I believe in the power of connection! We are stronger and better together, and we have much to learn from other female entrepreneur’s success. I created WWBN in 2010 to be a warm, relaxed and inviting space for female entrepreneurs and professional women to come together, build relationships and connections, to learn, and be inspired.

We’re a dynamic networking group for professional women and female entrepreneurs. We meet monthly for networking events comprising keynote speakers, connection and inspiration. Our members and guests attend from Southern Vancouver Island in a wide range of economic sectors.

At our networking events, you’ll hear a keynote speaker who shares learning to move your business forward; opportunity to showcase your product or service with a display table; ample connections; catered lunch; great conversations.  Attend a meeting and check us out! Here’s the meeting dates for the year. 

To further connections and build relationships outside of work and business, we offer special member-only fun, social events.

Training and professional development is key to moving our business forward. Keynote speakers and training opportunities throughout the year, provide business skills, learning and development opportunities. Check out our past events.

There’s lots of great reasons to become a member of Westshore Women’s Business Network. Guests are always welcome, but once you see the great reasons to join, you won’t be able to resist! Learn more.

We are honored to have received the Best of the West Shore business award from the West Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Best Networking Group.
