Quarterly Power Lunches deliver speakers and panels that bring fresh perspectives and real solutions to make business easy. Powering up your lunch with us keeps you dialed into world class business inspiration. We want you feeling energized and empowered to elevate your business.

A local diversity initiative sparks a culture of inclusion in our resort and beyond.

Join the Whistler Chamber as we learn about POWDER (Providing Opportunity for Women through Diversity, Equality and Respect) a Whistler Blackcomb initiative being implemented across the Vail Resorts network. POWDER focuses on diversity and inclusivity by educating and empowering women and men to shift perceptions of leadership, career pathways, and cultural norms that influence our decision-making and behaviours. Geoff, Kate and Miriam will share learnings from re-thinking hiring practices, scheduling, development, advocacy, education, recognition and role descriptions, and discuss how this work has begun a transformational cultural shift.

Key takeaways:
  • Understand how your business can benefit from embracing diversity
  • The future is a workforce that reflects the people we serve
  • Change to business operations that inspires and protects diversity is good business
