The Alberta Investment Management Corporation and the Alberta School of Business have partnered to host a panel discussion on International Women's Day around this year’s theme: #ChooseToChallenge.

It’s 2021, and across Canada, in universities, corporations, and the public sector, women are underrepresented at the organization’s highest echelons, missing from the positions of influence that shape our daily lives.

Guided by Amy Hepburn, CEO at Investor Leadership Network, panellists from different spheres of life will speak to the current realities and explore how we can move the needle, individually and collectively, across the corporate, political and academic spectrums to advance women. This year, we are thrilled to hear from guests:

Event includes an opening spoken word piece by Edmonton's Poet Laureate and Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion Nisha Patel (‘15 BCom).

Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world. Let’s choose to challenge by addressing gender bias and inequality while seeking out and celebrating women's achievements!
