“We are thrilled that Mandy will perform at the 2020 Gala.  She represents what Girls Inc is all about.  Strong, smart and bold.  As presenting sponsor and supporter of Girls Inc for the next four years we hope we can make a big impact in the community to help young women find their voice, find their strength.  As a woman in business, and former recipient of the Women of Inspiration award, I have experienced first-hand the positive impact of female support and mentorship at an early age.  It is our hope that Mandy and our local heroes in our community will help pave the path to greater strength for women in our region,” says Nicole Bourque-Bouchier, CEO Bouchier.


Mandy Harvey has become an international inspiration to many girls around the world, with 250 Million Facebook and YouTube views, she has a story, a message and a spirit of perseverance to change lives through music and her actions. Profoundly deaf following an illness at the age of 18, she has overcome incredible barriers and found a way to use her talent to make a difference in the world.  She travels the world to enhance possibilities for the deaf and disabled communities, heightening awareness, breaking down blocks, challenging stereotypes and leading the charge toward a brighter future for all.


“We are thrilled to welcome Mandy who can truly crystalize the excellence of our five nominees from the Wood Buffalo region. They are all truly advocating for girls’ rights and opportunities in our corner, and I am honoured to be part of this dialogue,” said Nanase Tonda, Executive Director of Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta.



Girls Inc of Northern Alberta is a non-profit organisation with the mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart and bold. Since 2012 the organisation has recognized and honored over 70 incredible women in our region.
