DNA Vancouver is a non-profit networking group founded in 1998, bringing professional women together to share ideas and evolve personally and professionally.

Our mission is to be a fun, social group for Vancouver women to build networks through friendships rather than just business cards. As a member, you gain access to relationship-based networking through food, drink, activities, and social events – there’s something for everyone! DNA offers networking opportunities that occur 1-2 times a month, so you are never far from connecting with us again.
