About the Event

The Women of Influence Awards were created to commemorate International Women’s Day (IWD) in Grande Prairie while celebrating women’s achievements and promoting equal opportunity for all.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is an event recognized worldwide to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women and to advocate for the continued advancements of equal rights. The IWD 2023 theme is #EmbraceEquity. The theme motivates others to consider, understand and modify behaviours to improve gender parity with our own spheres of influence. Embracing equity to foster inclusivity and diversity that helps to drive success for everyone. While celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political advancements of women.
