The evening will commence with inspiration focused on ethical performance and peer mentoring by Anna Murray, one of Canada’s most Powerful Women: 2010, Top 100 Winner, and Founder of Young Women in Energy.
It will be followed by election and installing of new executive officers of BPW Calgary. On May 14, play your part as a woman in business or in the professions to contribute your ideas on how we can improve conditions of women locally, nationally and internationally. We will review our core programs including Scholarships, Mentorship and Equal Pay to define a way forward as we enter the next term, 2014-2016.
The theme we started with in 2012 was Transforming Vision into Reality, and, as a committed group, we recognized the ripple effect especially when we marked Equal Pay Day in Calgary in 2013 and 2014. This motivated us to submit a renowned Resolution to BPW Canada on “Declaring Equal Pay Day Nationally”. With a strong and spirited capacity at the executive and committee levels, we certainly transformed vision into reality. Along the way, we sparked the next generation of female leaders through education and awareness.
We will also begin to renew memberships in May!
