The Ember Awards were created nearly 15 years ago to celebrate the digital excellence of individuals and organizations across Alberta. This year, the Ember Awards wanted to continue celebrating these initiatives, as well as shine a light on the wider accomplishments of the community, as well as it's diverse leaders.
Alicia Fowler is a true community champion through her company and her involvement in the community. Alicia is the CEO and founder of a women-led accounting & tax CPA firm located in Edmonton. In 2021, MOD Accounting & Tax was born with the goal of supporting women in business and promoting financial literacy. With Alicia’s guidance, MOD Accounting is changing the way accounting and tax services are provided. Alicia actively supports women in business and is an ally for marginalized groups. She is fearless in raising awareness and working to create an inclusive community for diverse backgrounds.
