Celebration Event

The Global News Woman of Vision program, hosted by Lesley MacDonald, has shared the inspirational stories of more than 276 extraordinary women in and around Edmonton since 1995.

The 23rd Annual Global News Woman of Vision Luncheon Celebration Luncheon will be held on Friday, April 6th with an expected audience of over 900 people. The event is the highlight of the Woman of Vision program, as it pays tribute to the inspirational women featured on Global News over the previous year.  Bursaries and scholarships are also awarded to aspiring young women students to help them realize their vision.  This emotional, spirit-lifting event is enhanced by the sharing of inspiration from the Women of Vision themselves.

“We have Kleenex on every table because we laugh, we cry, we share.” – Lesley MacDonald, founder/producer/host
