Highlight Reel from the 2021 CIWB Awards


The Axis Connects platform uses a “hub and spoke” model to connect and share information between organizations and initiatives in Calgary established to advance diverse professionals in our city’s business community. We are a resource for Members looking to build, grow and strengthen their network.


Axis Connects unites organizations advancing women and diverse professionals in the business community. We support them as they collaborate with one another to deliver effective and impactful programming to our Members.


We are focused on setting the bar for excellence in our corporate community and celebrating women (and men) whose professional success and commitment to our community deserve to be recognized. We join forces with Sponsor Partners who share our values and come together for the annual Calgary Influential Women in Business Awards.


Axis Connects provides detailed professional development resources to our Members to guide them through their career journey. We organize career development summits with industry experts who assist them with career progression planning and strategies.
