As the chancellor of Mount Royal University and former president and CEO at TransAlta, Dawn Farrell has spent her life paving the way for young women to reach beyond their dreams.

“Women honouring women creates a vision of a future where they can take their natural place as leaders in our society — whether their ambition is to lead in business, the community, government, education or the many non-profit organizations that weave the fabric of our society,” says Farrell, who recently found out she won a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Calgary Influential Women in Business (CIWB) Awards.

Farrell is among six inspirational business leaders to be celebrated at the CIWB Awards gala, presented by National Bank Financial Inc. and TransAlta Corporation on April 27 at the TELUS Convention Centre. The winners are being honoured for tirelessly championing women in the workplace and community. These individuals are recognized not just for their professional excellence and influence, but also for their advocacy for gender parity in the workplace.
