The Alberta Human Rights Commission has collaborated with BPW Calgary to educate the workforce since 2012. On August 13, 2016, BPW Canada recognized the Alberta Human Rights Commission as one of the 100 organizations from across Canada to receive the 2016 BPW Canada Centennial Recognition Award to mark a Canadian milestone, the 100 years of women's suffrage. The Centennial Gala and Awards Night paid tribute to the 100 organizations that are dedicated to improving lives of Canadian women and girls, their families and their communities. It was an evening to mark the centennial year of women's suffrage and to showcase empowering women in our changing world. https://www.albertahumanrights.ab.ca/publications/AHRIS/2016/Pages/October_25.aspx

Our common vision is that all women and men can reach their full potential, become active citizens, in peaceful, just and inclusive societies and thrive in a healthy, sustainable world.
