Past Events

The Women of Influence Breakfast was initially organized by Edwards School of Business in partnership with University of Saskatchewan, Extension Division starting in 2002. Initially, it was called "Women at the Top", and it was held at the top of the inn at the Sheraton Cavalier as a luncheon event with around 80-100 attendees. Lynne Pearson, Leanne Bellegarde and Sheila Fraser (Auditor General) were the first three women profiled that year. Since then, Edwards has taken over the event in its entirety, moved to a breakfast, grown to 400 in attendance, and have kept with the three speaker format. Please see below for previous years featured women speakers:

  • Women of Influence Scholarship Award

    A portion of the proceeds of this breakfast go towards the Women of Influence Scholarship Award that was established to support the dreams of students wishing to pursue a business education. The award was established in 2012 and is intended for business students (male or female) who are making progress towards degree completion and who are single-parents of a dependent child or children. Every year a current Edwards student receives a $1500 scholarship.
