Calgary, February 14, 2011 — McCarthy Tétrault is proud to be co-presenting sponsor of WXN’s Top 100 Calgary Summit and Awards Gala for Canada’s Most Powerful Women. The firm’s participation is just one example of its support for celebrating achievement and diversity in Canadian business. Every year, the firm’s Calgary office supports more than 60 not-for-profit organizations and events.
"We are very proud to be supporting this event," said Peter Keohane, a partner with the firm’s Business Law Group in Calgary. Cathy Samuel, partner, noted, "Adding to our pride is the fact that several of the past and current honorees have emerged from the ranks of our clients and McCarthy Tétrault’s own professionals." Previous WXN winners and McCarthy Tétrault partners include Lisa Vogt, Barbara Boake, Gabrielle Richards and, now retired, Kirby Chown.
The summit and gala, organized by the Women’s Executive Network (WXN), will be held at the Westin Calgary on February 16th. Its theme for the 2011 event is "The Power of Collaboration and Connectivity" inspired by the powerful women of Alberta. Joining McCarthy Tétrault as the event’s other co-presenting sponsor is KPMG.
