Community Achievement Award: Calgarian of the Year presented to Heather Culbert

Exciting News!

Axis Connects is thrilled to celebrate our incredible co-founder and board chair, Heather Culbert, who has been honoured with the prestigious Community Achievement Award: Calgarian of the Year!

Heather’s impact on Calgary is nothing short of extraordinary. After nearly three decades in the oil and gas sector, she dedicated herself to community service, leaving an indelible mark on our city. Her leadership and innovation have driven countless initiatives, enhancing the lives of Calgarians.

From her pivotal roles as chair of SAIT’s Board of Governors and co-chair of the Promising Futures Campaign to her relentless efforts with Board Ready Women and Axis Connects, Heather’s dedication to advancing women in business is unparalleled. She has also made significant contributions as a trustee for the Alberta Cancer Foundation and as past chair for United Way of Calgary and Area, among many other roles.

One of Heather’s most significant achievements is her leadership in the OWN.CANCER campaign, raising an astounding $225 million towards the new Arthur JE Child Comprehensive Cancer Centre. This centre, set to open this year, will revolutionize cancer treatment in North America, thanks to Heather’s tireless efforts and the support of many volunteers and donors.

Join us in congratulating Heather Culbert on this well-deserved recognition! Her passion, vision, and dedication are truly inspirational.
