She Leads Economic Council of Alberta
One of the She Leads Foundation's primary initiatives was to establish the She Leads Economic Council of Alberta (SLECA) to provide strategic advice to public office holders across the political spectrum. The Council is comprised of female leaders throughout Alberta with wide ranging business and economic expertise. Council members include well-established leaders in their respective industries as well as those up-and-coming women who add new voices to the table.
Currently the Alberta – and Canadian – economies are facing unique challenges, which make open conversations between government and business leaders crucial. Our hope is for SLECA to be a key part of those discussions.
