On March 18, 2013, BPW Calgary members, partners and supporters gathered to mark Equal Pay Day near the “Women are Persons” monument in the Olympic Plaza. President Jenny Gulamani-Abdulla set the tone by chanting, “Equal Pay, Equal Pay, Equal Pay”. The crowd joined her energetically as she revealed that the Premier of Alberta, Alison Redford sent special greetings with strong support for the day. She also shared that the Mayor of Calgary, Naheed Nenshi, issued a letter of recognition to acknowledge Equal Pay Day.
BPW International awarded a Certificate of Recognition to BPW Calgary in Puerto Rico during the International Congress in recognition for their contribution to the empowerment of working women and their Equal Pay Day efforts.
