CEO of Alberta Women Entrepreneurs
Episode 117: Advice for Starting and Running Your Own Business From a CEO
This week, we welcome Marcela Mandeville to the Inner Circle.
Marcela has explored the world of business through a globally focused business undergraduate degree, designation as a Certified International Trade Professional and more than twenty years of global experience developing and implementing business strategies. A career highlight has been taking on leadership roles at Alberta Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) to support AWE’s goal to build stronger communities and economies through women’s participation in entrepreneurship.
Marcela believes strongly in continuous learning and contributing to the community. In addition to serving as Chair of the Women’s Enterprise Organizations of Canada, she volunteers her time on the Edmonton Economic Development Corporation Board of Directors, University of Alberta Professional Development for Graduate Students Advisory Board, the Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization Canada Board of Directors and the Edmonton Region Innovation Network Steering Committee. In 2019, Marcela was appointed as Edmonton Regional Ambassador for the UN Women’s Entrepreneurship Day Organization.
Marcela gives us an inside look at how her culture and upbringing in both Canada and Mexico gave her unique insight growing up, her mother's influence on her, business advice for those just starting their careers, what the AWE has in store, and much more.
