Young Women in Energy is thrilled to celebrate International Women’s Day by announcing the ten winners of its ninth annual Awards Program.
Since 2014, YWE’s Awards Program has highlighted over 80 women’s invaluable contributions and remarkable accomplishments within Alberta’s energy industry. Award honorees are selected based on their commitment to challenging the status quo through novel initiatives, exemplary leadership, exceptional performance, and their impact on the local community and broader industry.
“The energy industry is in a pivotal stage, from managing decarbonization goals to navigating the evolving regulatory landscape,” said Katie Smith-Parent, Executive Director of YWE. “Women’s contributions to the energy industry are not only creating a more inclusive and equitable workforce but also driving the development of new technologies and processes that are shaping Alberta’s future.”
In January, a robust review process was conducted, including a peer review and a final executive evaluation by the 2022 YWE Awards Executive Selection Committee. We extend our deepest thanks to this year’s Executive Selection Committee for lending their time and expertise to help identify the top young women in Alberta’s energy industry to receive the recognition and benefits of a YWE Award Winner.
“We are inspired by the diverse experience, innovative solutions, and unwavering commitment to both the energy industry and the community exemplified by each one of the award recipients,” said YWE Awards Manager, Carmen Yu (ConocoPhillips). “As women continue to drive the transformation of Alberta’s energy industry, they are paving the way for many future female leaders.”
YWE Award Winners will be honored at the annual awards celebration event on Thursday, March 23, 2023. Purchase tickets here: https://yweawardsmagazinelaunch.eventbrite.ca/.
Subsequently, each award winner is paired with an industry executive mentor through the YWE Mentorship Program, honored with a YWE Award keepsake, and welcomed into the YWE Awards Alumni network, amongst other benefits.
