Women of Inspiration Series

“As a woman in business, and former recipient of the Women of Inspiration award, I am proud to support Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta. As Girls Inc. says, ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’, so it is a great honour for me to stand alongside these exceptional young girls and women.” - Nicole Bourque-Bouchier


How it started

The series started in 2012, first presented by Syncrude who remains an integral partner of Girls Inc., with a goal to recognize women throughout the Wood Buffalo region who inspire others, break new ground or old barriers and help create positive change. 

The series has honoured 77 inspiring women from the Wood Buffalo region, showing young girls positive role models who live right here.
