Member Events

CAWEE inspires people to come together!

Monthly Morning Meetings

Morning meetings, held online the second Thursday morning of each month, are a key benefit of CAWEE membership. Start your day with an informative, timely and fun meeting from 7:30 to 9:00! You will find 40-50 members and guests in attendance ready to build on their relationships with you.

Along with an opportunity for each attendee to present a 20-second infomercial, you will participate in smaller breakout sessions which members rave about - their favourite parts of the meetings.

A variety of CAWEE members take turns hosting these morning sessions so expect to see a variety of faces in in this role.

Special Events

At CAWEE we bring together our members to commemorate special events during the year. We encourage networking in a more informal setting so that members and guests can create and develop rich bonds with each other.

  • International Women’s Day – a Universal Day of celebration for women all over the world. Special speakers are invited to share their individual experiences with our members and guests on their various journeys in gaining recognition in their field of expertise.
  • Golf Day, in partnership with the Women Law Association of Ontario.
  • Holiday Event: we celebrate all the holidays and festivals for our diverse membership and their guests. The event may be held any time between late November and early to mid January.

After Work Events

After Work Events are an integral part of the CAWEE experience. We hold two or three informal get-togethers each year in addition to our annual Open House. These evening events also serve as fundraisers for our charity of choice.

After Work Events provide a chance to network with like minded women in a casual environment and enjoy some refreshments in a central Toronto location. Events normally run for one and a half to two hours starting at 5:30.

Our annual Open House offers an opportunity to welcome guests and highlight the benefits of CAWEE for those new to the association and possibly considering membership.
