Local up for national honour

A Kelowna woman has been named a finalist for one of the 2019 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards.

Laurel Douglas, who is the CEO of Women’s Entreprise Centre, is the west nominee for the Social Change Award. She is up against Toronto’s Geetha Moorthy, of SAAAC Autism Centre, and Montreal’s Pascale Bouchard, of Leucan.

The RBC honours, which are in their 27th year, are viewed as Canada’s top national business awards recognizing the country’s leading female entrepreneurs.

Douglas is one of 23 finalists in seven categories that were chosen from among more than 1,000 nominees. The Social Change Award is given to an exceptional leader of a registered charity, not-for-profit or for-profit social enterprise that is dedicated to social change.
