Wanted: A few good young women in energy—but hurry, time is running out.
Young Women in Energy (YME), based in Calgary, has set a deadline of Sept. 30 for nominations for its third annual YME awards.
“As part of building an authentic community for our members, we want to recognize and reward Alberta’s young women who are going above and beyond to change the face of energy,” said YME spokesperson Katie Smith.
The awards open Sept. 1 with submissions due by the end of the month.
YME says the awards program, open to women with a minimum of three years of experience working in energy or at an energy-related service provider, is an important opportunity to be recognized by peers, mentors, leaders and coworkers.
YWE is looking for candidates who demonstrate drive and vision and who step out to propose new initiatives.
“We know there are many deserving women out there, and there are impactful benefits for winners,” said Smith.
Former award winner, Anne Harding said, “I have received far more recognition than I ever expected within my own company, which has raised my profile and connected me with meaningful conversations about the role of young women in the energy sector.”
Qualified candidates can be nominated, or apply themselves, for the YWE award program.
Winners are chosen by YME’s selection committee, and receive many benefits including a mentor for the year, recognition at a YWE event, and a professional photo shoot.

Young Women in Energy was founded to champion the interests of young women working in energy, locally and internationally.
YWE aims to address the recognized need to increase female presence, development and leadership in the energy industry.
“We are building an authentic community where members join because they are genuinely interested in connecting with and learning from peers,” said Smith.
