WOWSA was established in September 2009 by eight women from Minto and Wellington North who came together believing that there was a place for a business network that supported women who run their own businesses or work in existing businesses.

Events are held September through June, and alternate between facilities in Harriston, Mount Forest and Hanover. There are no membership fees, however fees apply for each event. All women in business are welcome and participants are not obliged to attend all events.

With the latest exciting announcement of the expansion into Hanover, the network continues to grow and offer participants regional strength and the invaluable opportunity to bring together a wealth of expertise and education, while providing support, encouragement and motivation for women in business.
