Soroptimist Calgary Dream Awards

Soroptimist International of Calgary request your attendance at our annual Dream Awards Ceremony.

Please join us for a virtual afternoon of joy and celebration as we recognize our 2020 & 2021 recipients of the Live Your Dream, Dare to Dream and Making a Difference for Women Awards.

The festivities will begin promptly at 2pm Calgary time, with the zoom room opening 15min early.

The Live Your Dream program provides women with cash grants to offset costs associated with their efforts to attain higher education and additional skills training. The ultimate goal of the program is to help women improve their economic status by preparing them to enter or re-enter the workplace – to help women reclaim their dreams of a better life for themselves and their family.

This year we award 10 deserving women (2020 & 2021)!

Each of the recipients will be introduced and speak about their future educational plans.

*The judges of this award are women from the local community, from various backgrounds who are not Soroptimist members. Soroptimist Calgary is grateful to these women for donating their time to judge this award.

Dare to Dream Award for Women is a cash award that recipients may use to offset any costs associated with their efforts to obtain an education, including books, tuition, transportation and more.

The award is directed at single women who want to upgrade their education at a university or college, or who, for whatever reason, find that they are lacking in the basic education of high school diploma, or are new to Canada and must improve their English education in order to enter the workforce in their chosen field. It also targets women who find themselves lacking in the skills needed to find a better career, so want to enter a skills training program.

This year we award 3 deserving women (1 from 2020, 2 from 2021)!

Each of the recipients will be introduced and speak about their future educational plans.

*The LYD Award is judged by members of Soroptimist Calgary, and the club is grateful to these women for taking the time to judge this award.

The Making a Difference for Women Award honours women who, through their professional or personal efforts, are making extraordinary differences in the lives of women or girls. Honourees are women who have worked to improve the lives of other women or girls. Their work has had a significant impact, and also inspires and encourages other women.

This year we honour both our 2020 and 2021 recipients, who will each speak to the work they do to improve the lives of other women and girls.

Please RSVP before April 2nd by reserving a FREE ticket.

Feel free to share this event with friends and family.

If you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your ticket before 5PM Thursday April 15th so we are not waiting to begin our celebration.
