Noon - 1:30 pm: Lunch & Guest Speaker Margo Goodhand
Event MC: Nancy Carlson, Global News Anchor
Margo Goodhand was the first female news editor of the Medicine Hat News, the founding editor of Okanagan Business Magazine, and the first female editor-in-chief of the Winnipeg Free Press. In 2013, she returned to Alberta to lead the venerable Edmonton Journal, one of the country’s most talented and collaborative newsrooms.
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.
