We are now accepting nominations for our 3rd Women of Inspiration Series!

The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo is home to many women who work hard to make our region prosperous; to give our residents the best quality of life possible, and who care so deeply about our residents that they give up their precious time to help them.

In order to recognize these women, Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta, in partnership with Syncrude, created the Women of Inspiration series. Each month, one woman is selected and featured through local media and on the Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta website, in order to highlight the great female leaders we have here in Wood Buffalo.

With the huge success of the first two years of this program, we are pleased to announce that we will be offering this program for a third year! The event serves as a way to recognize female role models in our region, while celebrating the successes our women have accomplished, while promoting education for our young girls through the scholarship portion.

It is our hope that you will join us in this exciting project and will nominate a woman who has broken boundaries and is a leader within the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. You can nominate as many amazing women as you care to, and can submit the nominations at one time. Please fill out the form and send it back to our office by mail or email. The form can be found here.
