PODCAST: Episode #036: #IWD Series: Celebrating Alberta’s Powerful Women Leaders—Terri Steeves’ Story

From professionals and community advocates to entrepreneurs and C-suite executives, Alberta is home to so many incredible women leaders. These women are innovating business models, disrupting the status quo, and evolving the conversation of what it means to be a leader in a complex world. They are making their communities better.

In the spirit of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we want to celebrate these women. This podcast series, Celebrating Alberta’s Powerful Women Leaders, highlights the stories of four incredible leaders in Alberta.

Series co-hosts Alicia Planincic and Brittany Brander talk with each leader about her journey into leadership, overcoming barriers and challenges, shifting the conversation about what it means to be a leader, advice for the next generation of leaders, and the vision each holds for the future of Alberta.
