Thank you!

With a new year and a different format, the start of 2017 brought along another successful Courage, Wisdom, Success event for the Regina Women's Network!  After three years of featuring big name Canadian celebrities including Dragon's Den alum Arlene Dickinson, celebrity chef Anna Olson and Juno Award winning singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk, we changed focus and went back to our roots. In spite of the chill in the air and the early hour, the Double Tree Hotel's conference room was full of women (and men) on the edge of their seats!  Our focus this year was to create an engaging platform for networking of existing members as well as recruiting some new ones! Between an excellent turnout, a filling and tasty plated breakfast, business cards were flying, eyes were tearing and hearts were touched as we listened to the stories of our formidable speakers. So inspired were the event attendees, we even had 20 new members join our network! That's 20 new strong, like-minded women for more networking, relationship building and fun! 

This year we focused on 3 amazing local women; Early Childhood Education Student Tristan Badger, Royal Canadian Mounted Police Corporal Angela Knight, and finally the co-owner and Chief Operations Officer of Postcard Portables Canada (and former NASA employee), Aubrey Huber. All three of these women told stories that were at times heart-wrenching, occasionally hilarious, and above all, inspiring, while still being relatable. Each of them represented a different age group and told their story through their own lens, and each related how they pulled through their lives with courage, wisdom, and success. They had everyone is attendance laughing and crying with them, while simultaneously highlighting that no matter who you are, you can and should tell your story!

RWN would like to say a huge "Thank you!" to Tristin Badger, Angela Knight and Aubrey Huber. You are each a true inspiration to us all!

RWN would also like to say "Thank you!" to all of our amazing sponsors without whom this event would not be possible.

And last, but definitely not least, our final "THANK YOU!!!"  to our committee. 3 months is an incredibly short time frame to pull off such an amazing event.  We appreciate all of your time and effort! 

Courage, Wisdom, Success

Courage Wisdom Success embodies the courageous strengths of women, the shared wisdom that they supportively offer, and how we joyfully celebrate success in all of its forms. We regularly organize a major fundraising event featuring a celebrity keynote speaker that brings together RWN members and leaders in the community in order to support our network objectives and to promote public awareness of RWN. Funds raised through CWS are given back to our membership by providing personal and professional development as well as networking opportunities.

Tristan Badger

Tristan Badger grew up in a rural community, where she met her partner Sean. Due to the inadequate education and resources available to Saskatchewan youth, Tristan and Sean faced an unplanned pregnancy at the age of sixteen. Tristan gave birth to their son, Jacen, in December of 2012. Despite the incredible stigma attached to being an aboriginal teen mother; Tristan was determined to provide her child with the best upbringing possible. She returned to school shortly after giving birth to Jacen, and went on to become the first member of her family to attend university.

Shortly after Jacen’s first birthday, Sean fell gravely ill. After a near death experience, he faced a lengthy hospitalization and multiple amputations. Tristan was left with the responsibility of parenting Jacen, completing high school and emotionally supporting a critically ill partner.

Now, at the age of twenty-one, Tristan has overcome more adversity than most of us can expect to see in a lifetime. Her story is one of courage, perseverance and love. She is currently pursuing her degree in Early Childhood Education at the University of Regina; and continues to support Sean on his journey to healing as they parent four year old Jacen together.
