The Indigenous Women in Leadership Award recognizes that the role of Indigenous women in traditional life has long been one of leadership and strength. The tenacity and determination of Indigenous women today stands as a powerful testament to their role in preserving traditions and culture. Indigenous Women in Leadership (IWIL) nominees are leaders and mentors in Indigenous business. They are politically and nationally engaged businesswomen that have contributed and improved the lives of Indigenous people. Their work has made a difference to their community and/or across the country, empowering others to do the same.


Congratulations Shelly on this amazing achievement.
