Porsche Centre Edmonton has always been inspired by women with drive, and recently created the Porsche Centre Edmonton Women's Grant to celebrate these passionate women. This $2,500 educational grant was intended to reward a dedicated and successful woman for her hard work, and we believe that this mission has been accomplished.
We comprised an all-female group of panelists to determine the recipient of this award. Thankfully, many Porsche clients are highly accomplished women in a variety of industries. Our panel consisted of 3 Edmonton-based women who are all highly respected in their fields - Jerri L. Cairns (LLP) , Dr. Parveen Sunner, and Dr. Megan Lalonde. We are truly grateful to have so many intelligent and inspiring women call Edmonton home.
We are so pleased to announce the winner of the $2,500 Women's Grant: Samia Rahman!
