Women+Power is pleased to announce FortisAlberta as our newest sponsor! FortisAlberta delivers safe and reliable electricity service to more than 60 percent of Alberta’s total electricity distribution network — that’s electricity to more than half a million residential, farm and business customers from across central and southern Alberta. FortisAlberta operates in 240 communities with more than 124,000 kilometres of power lines. As an electricity provider, FortisAlberta builds, maintains and repairs the lines that keep the power on. Their team of more than 1,100 Albertans, including 350 lineworkers, are at your service today and every day, across more than 50 municipal districts and counties.
Janine Sullivan, President and CEO of FortisAlberta stated, “We are proud at FortisAlberta to celebrate the contributions of each individual in order to create a strong culture of diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. We seek to promote trust and awareness, strengthen voices that might not otherwise be heard and create opportunities to share individual perspectives. We recognize the importance of breaking down barriers for women and creating opportunities to lead within the electricity industry.”
