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.

Corporal Angela Knight
Corporal Angela Knight was accepted into the RCMP at the age of 40. From her first post in Thompson, Manitoba to her time in Kamsack, Saskatchewan, she has witnessed and been impacted by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, alcohol and drug abuse, the effects of lack of education and poverty on communities, death, and so much more. Corporal Knight exemplifies the power and resiliency of the human spirit when living a life of passion and purpose. Corporal Knight is currently working as an instructor in the Applied Police Sciences Unit educating new cadets at the Regina RCMP Depot.
Aubrey Huber moved to Regina, Saskatchewan in January of 2006. Prior to moving to Canada, she worked in the field of space exploration, serving in mission operations roles within the NASA Mars Robotic Spacecraft Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Upon moving to Canada she has focused her efforts in the private sector, and is currently serving as the co-owner and Chief Operating Officer of Postcard Portables Canada – a franchising company in the advertising sector that provides billboards and print products to local and national businesses. The company was founded in Saskatchewan and since awarding its initial franchise in 2005, now has 12 locations in major cities throughout Canada, spanning from Alberta to Nova Scotia. Aubrey has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Geology from Arizona State University and a Master’s Degree in Engineering from the University of Regina.
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.
Help us empower and acknowledge women in our community who would not necessarily get the recognition they truly deserve. You won't want to miss this opportunity!
