Build your network, Connect with others, Grow your business!

“NETWORKING is the single most powerful marketing tactic to accelerate and sustain success for any individual or organization!”


Sept 19/18


Remember that at a networking event, everyone is there to meet new people & nurture connections. Going alone and walking up to strangers is the point. Everyone has some apprehension.  Take the initiative.”

We are very excited to share information about Dufferin Women in Business, including up-coming networking events, profiles, articles, event photos, sponsorship opportunities and more.  DWIB is run by volunteers who are dedicated to the facilitation of networking events and making connections in Dufferin County. Currently in our 15th anniversary year, Dufferin Women in Business is still going strong and providing women the opportunity to Build, Connect & Grow! 

What is Dufferin Women in Business?

DWIB is a committee of the Dufferin Board of Trade and offers opportunities on a monthly basis for women to “Build, Connect & Grow”.

We understand the importance of networking and more importantly “connecting”.  As women, it’s in our DNA to nurture relationships, understand the pressures and be supportive to each other.

We welcome non-DBOT members to attend but do encourage you to see the value in Dufferin Board of Trade membership and the many opportunities to get involved….learn more
