Women of Influence

International Women's Day is celebrated on the 8th of March every year around the world. It is a focal point in the movement for women's rights.  The GPRC is excited to launch our Women of Influence Campaign at a virtual International Women's Day event.  The Women of Influence Campaign is a promotional campaign by the GPRC to celebrate the Region's women who are the best in their fields.

March 8 - INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY CELEBRATION Presented by: Modern Muse Media

On March 8, International Women's Day, we will be celebrating all of the incredible women in our region, business owners,  care workers, home makers, and leaders!

The Greater Parkland Regional Chamber recognizes that diversity is good for business, that organizations greatly benefit from having a diverse leadership team throughout the organizational structure, and that women in business play a critical role in breaking ground in the land of opportunities.

We will begin the evening with a Keynote Chat with Angela Santiago of The Little Potato Company.  Angela co-founded The Little Potato Company Ltd. 22 years ago with her father, Jacob Vander Schaaf, a Dutch immigrant who longed for the tasty ‘little potatoes’ of his youth.  Angela lives in the area with her family and is a University of Alberta graduate.

The GPR Chamber has selected 5 Women of Influence to be announced during this event. It is important to recognize the great successes that are coming from our little corner of the world. These women are leaders in their field, forging the way forward in their chosen industries, and some have taken their businesses globally.
