Dear Mount Royal alumni,

From here in Calgary, we celebrate International Women’s Day with all of you around the globe.

Reflecting on this year’s IWD theme, #PressForProgress, and with the successes of the Pyeongchang Olympics fresh in my mind, I thought it was the perfect time to share stories of alumnae who are blazing a trail in the field of sports. We hope you enjoy the stories of Jacquie Hertlein, Grace Dafoe, Marianna Raguz and Corinne Ethier.

We’re proud of all our alumni who are changing our world for the better every day. How do you wish to #PressforProgress this annual International Women’s Day? Share your ideas!
