2019 Wise Women Awards
The Status of Women Council of the NWT has been recognizing women for their achievements and contribution to improving the lives of women and their communities through the Wise Women Awards since 1992. These awards are meant to honour women who are role models in their communities, as well as recognize their dedication and commitment to improving the status of women. The Wise Women Awards are intended to encourage and celebrate women, in particular those who contribute to the Council’s mandate of advancing equality of women in the territory.
