The Alberta Women Entrepreneurs are an organization dedicated to enabling women to build successful businesses by providing unique programs and services to women in business through mentoring, advising, financing and skills and network development. (In fact, In my early days of starting up BE3Designs, I enrolled in the Roadmap for Success training workshop to get a better idea of the components to consider in writing a business plan).
In late November, I learned that I was one of over 30 women nominated for this year’s AWE’s Celebration of Achievement.
The Celebration of Achievement pays tribute to an exceptional entrepreneur who has achieved recognizable success. This visionary woman is an inspirational leader, who has built an entrepreneurial venture in Alberta with significant impact on the economy and the community, and who acts as a role model for women in business.
As I mentioned last month in my Edmonton’s Top 100 Women in Business blog post, Alberta has been very kind to me since moving to and starting a life here. The women that I find myself on this nomination list with are all providing of the experience, energy and empowerment to lead and inspire women everywhere. I feel lucky to be part of this alumni and I hope I can continue to inspire and create a path that enables and empowers more women to start businesses, create from their ideas, and maybe even learn to code a little!
Congratulations to all the women recognized this year!
