Past Recipients

Minerva Award

According to legend, ‘Minerva’ was the goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, and craft. She was often depicted as an owl – a symbol of wisdom.

The Minerva Award is presented annually to recognize a member of the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network who gives freely of her experience, time and energy to the organization, its members, and our community.

This individual is someone who has been instrumental in the growth of the CVWBN, who have assisted others in the membership and is a well-respected member of the business community.

The presentation of the award is made at the Annual General Meeting, which is held on the second Wednesday in May each year.
