What makes a woman a leader?
How do you break that glass ceiling?
And how far have we actually come since some of the Famous Five got Alberta women the vote a century ago?
This year’s guest speaker Margo Goodhand has been breaking ground, and glass ceilings, for years.
First female news editor of the Medicine Hat News; founding editor of Okanagan Business Magazine; first female editor in chief of the Winnipeg Free Press.
As editor of the Edmonton Journal, she was the only Postmedia editor to speak out on editorial endorsements.
She’s fearless, she’s funny, and like many of us, she’s been both horrified and inspired by the U.S. election.
With more than 30 years of experience in media/communications, Goodhand is an itinerant media expert for CBC The National and a popular public speaker on issues ranging from media and politics to women’s history and leadership. Currently vice-chair of the National Newspaper Awards board of governors, she has just completed a history of the women’s shelter network in Canada called The First Five; and a play on The Famous Five — because good things obviously come in fives.
The Famous 5 Foundation is proud to partner with Enbridge Pipelines Inc. to present the Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series featuring dynamic and engaging women. Sponsored by Global Edmonton, The Enbridge Famous 5 Speaker Series gives Canadian women a platform to share the stories of their leadership journey and to inspire others.
