The SHEInnovates Alberta Chapter presents our initial kickoff to celebrate Alberta women innovators and entrepreneurs. As part of the UN Women’s innovation strategy to drive action in this area, UN Women has created the Global Innovation Coalition for Change (GICC). The GICC is a dynamic partnership between UN Women and key representatives from the private sector, academia and nonprofit institutions focused on developing the innovation market to work better for women and to accelerate the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment.
SHEInnovates Alberta will be the first Canadian Chapter and a pilot for the GICC. The project will be documented and shared with the GICC and UN Women so that the learnings can be shared and adapted for other regions globally. SHEInnovates Alberta will celebrate and inspire women innovators and entrepreneurs in Alberta.
