Alberta Women Entrepreneurs Celebration of Achievement

Celebration of Achievement

Since 2012, the annual AWE Celebration of Achievement award has paid tribute to an exceptional woman entrepreneur who has built a business in Alberta with a significant impact on the economy and the community. This entrepreneur is an inspirational leader and a role model for women in business.

In 2016, AWE expanded our awards program in order to be able to recognize more of the amazing things women entrepreneurs are doing in our province. The three additional categories are the: AWE Upsurge Award, AWE Emerging Entrepreneur Award, and AWE Emerging Innovator Award.

This is the only event of its kind in Alberta that brings together female entrepreneurs with representatives from government, industry, media, and educational institutions to celebrate the outstanding contributions of inspiring female entrepreneurs. 

Congratulations to our 2018 Recipient, Eveline Charles!
