What is WE FOR SHE?

WE FOR SHE is a movement to boost gender equality in the workplace, grow women leaders and empower girls to be bold in their careers.

The NextGen Leaders Program is part of the WE FOR SHE movement that focuses specifically on supporting young women with mentors, champions and support. It brings young women and men in grades 10-12 and business leaders together for dialogue and mentoring in a school environment. The goals of the movement are to advance diversity and gender equality and to help girls gain the skills and confidence to make bold career choices.


In 2017, BYOBF Network hosted the first Supergirl Within Conference. To continue on that success, in 2018 BYOBF Network presents WE FOR SHE in partnership with the Women’s Enterprise Centre and the Minerva Foundation. BYOBF Network’s WE FOR SHE will bring 100+ students and 30+ business leaders together to help young women and men step up, imagine a more diverse workplace and hear from successful women and men who are leading the way.

Young women an men from all Surrey Secondary Schools will have an opportunity to register for the conference. The conference is offered at no cost to the participants and this is why we need the community’s support to make this dream a reality.


Since 2014, business leaders, women’s organizations, companies and experts have gathered in Vancouver every year at WE FOR SHE, a forum to discuss how to support women in the workplace. A major conclusion: help young women gain the skills and confidence to succeed before they even start their careers. BYOBF Network is hosting a WE FOR SHE NextGen event at Khalsa School in Surrey to share these important messages and we need your support to make it a reality.

By contributing to our event, you will gain public recognition as a supporter of the next generation of business leaders. We are doing a lot of promotion to students and in our community and your business will benefit from our outreach.
