6 CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY "The selection group tried to select women who had perhaps been first trailblazers specifically rooted in Manitoba," she said. "They looked for women who did something that broke the ceiling for other women or who achieved a first in their area." For the next step of the project, the organization aims to produce a bilingual virtual book featuring a biography for each award recipient. The target publication date is June 25, which is Nellie McClung Day. At the same time, it's worth taking a moment to recognize these women on International Women's Day. "I think the 150 list is emblematic of what we're trying to do on International Women's Day, which is to make sure that women are recognized as part of the fabric of what's making the world a better place," Oulton said. "Many women have not been acknowledged for their work — and it's time we celebrated them." The full list of recipients and nominees is posted on The Nellie McClung Foundation website at ◗ "Women in leadership roles are important. They bring a different perspective in decision making. They empower other female employees." "Whether it be on our Executive Team or our Board of Directors, at Caisse Financial Group we support equal opportunities for both men and women."
