Integrity Awards Dinner

The Annual Integrity Awards Dinner took place on Thursday, May 5, 2016 at the Nisku Inn and Conference Centre, emceed by our club member Lesley MacDonald.
The Rotary Club of Edmonton nominated Bishop Jane Alexander, one of eight winners of the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards in May 2015 in Edmonton. The gala honoured Edmonton women in diverse fields such as the arts, business and education. She has promoted the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and has been a strong advocate for the city’s indigenous populations, same sex couples and people who are marginalized. She is Co-Chair with Mayor Don Iveson of the End Poverty Edmonton task force, whose ambitious mandate is to eliminate poverty in a generation.
Congratulations to our Club’s 2016 Integrity Award Nominee and all other District Nominees.

What are the Integrity Awards?

Each participating Rotary Club in the Capital Region nominates an individual who promotes high ethical standards and raises awareness of Rotary ideals.  The purpose of these awards is to honour adult, non-Rotarian members of the community for their integrity as citizens; someone who is an un-sung hero.  Each participating club recognizes one such individual at the Annual Integrity Awards Dinner. The criteria for selection are that the individual is:
  • A non-Rotarian adult resident of Alberta;
  • One whose lifestyle is consistent with the Four Way Test;
  • Someone whose life shows purpose and expresses principles widely accepted in the community;
  • One who, regardless of circumstances, takes a stand without concern for personal loss or reputation;
  • A person who may not necessarily have a high public profile; and
  • One who has made a personal contribution to the region, which would warrant special recognition.
