Women of Inspiration Nominees

The Women of Inspiration Series has a goal to recognize women throughout the Wood Buffalo region who inspire others, break new ground or old barriers, and help create change, and who embody the mission of Girls Inc.: "To inspire all girls to be Strong, Smart & Bold." The series also aims to show local girls positive role models who live within their community.

Over the course of a year, we showcase the stories of local women who are driving positive change for other women and girls, either directly or by example. We host a Women of Inspiration Celebration in March of each year to recognize International Women's Day on March 8th and to celebrate the contributions of all the nominees.
