Support Nova Scotia’s women in business:



The CWB Way

As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations, The Centre for Women in Business (CWB) has created a book called The CWB Way – Transforming Women’s Entrepreneurial Experiences. It’s about where we have been, who we have served, and what lies ahead. Its intention was to share what we have learned these past three decades, to act as a guide for other organizations with similar missions, and to profile but a small sampling of the incredible diversity of women the CWB has had the privilege to serve.  

At the core of the book, and based on our three decades of experience supporting female-identifying business owners, is a detailed look into our pioneering methodology. Entitled The CWB Way, the book outlines the five elements women-identifying entrepreneurs need to succeed.  

They are: 

1) women-centered learning 

2) dedicated centres for women in business 

3) all-in partnerships 

4) research, results and accountability 

5) advocacy and outreach.  

Working within these five elements has been foundational to our success for the past 30 years and will continue to be the framework for serving women-identifying entrepreneurs for the next 30 and beyond.
