Every year, Womanition women nominate other women across Alberta deserving of recognition for their contributions in various categories. Award judges are not associated with Womanition, and they volunteer their time to read each of the nominee’s biographies and vote to determine the winners in each of the categories.

A pearl starts as a foreign particle; over time, concentrated layers of crystalline aragonite surround it. They are highly valued as gemstones—admired for their iridescence, luster and naturally occurring spherical shape! Pearls in her Profession!
What a perfect metaphor for female entrepreneurs! Like the small particle that begins of Pearl… we start out with a will to succeed… then create our persona through the many layers of experiences and skills we amass!
Alone, we shine… however, our feminine nature is to share ideas… bringing us together to form a “String of Pearls”… strong, sophisticated, complex, and flexible! Over time, a single pearl can evolve into an iridescent beauty and gain admiration… and in the same way, one special person can ignite the world around us to such an extent that we feel compelled to honour her achievements!

“I have made some wonderful friendships that continue to bloom and enrich my life. Barely a day goes by where I don’t talk to someone who I met through the Womanition Group. When I moved to Edmonton in 2014 I didn’t know anyone! I really can’t even express how much being part of Womanition has meant to me. It has changed my life!!” -Karen Murdock
