LEGACY

Your donation to Legacy projects will help us to develop educational curriculums and commemorative projects to ensure the story of the Famous Five is told and celebrated.

Successful past Legacy projects include the monuments of the Famous Five at Olympic Plaza in Calgary and on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, the immersive Binaural Audio experience, and the educational Teacup Video


LEADERSHIP

Through recognizing and sharing the success stories of today’s female leaders, our Leadership Programs inspire and cultivate acts of courage in others. One of our most popular initiatives, the Enbridge Famou5 Speaker Series highlights female leaders in Calgary, Edmonton, Fort McMurray, Sarnia, and Ottawa. The Remarkable Leaders' Workshop and Youth Leadership Award also work to create strong leaders in our community.

Your donation to Leadership Projects will allow us to send deserving women to the Speaker Series or Remarkable Leaders Workshop, and continue to provide great Leadership programming for the women in our community.

FUTURE 5

Through skill-building workshops and events, the Future 5 Program helps young girls grow into Canada’s next generation of leaders. Through partnerships with GirlPower and the Boys and Girls Club, our half-day Power of You workshops and 2-day Young Women of Power conference bring lessons in confidence and leadership to local girls in need of a boost.

Your donation to Future 5 projects will allow us to send girls in need to a Power of You workshop or Young Women of Power conference and provide lessons and inspiration to inspire greatness in our future generation of leaders.
