Kelowna Women in Business has honoured an Okanagan College professor with its most prestigious award.

OC business professor Dr. Kyleen Myrah has been named KWIB’s 2024 Business Woman of the Year, given annually to a leader who is a champion for women in the workforce and role model within her industry who displays excellence in her field and is actively involved in the local business community.

Coincidentally, Myrah was unable to receive her award in person earlier this month because she was guiding Okanagan College business students at the annual Enactus Canada National Exhibition in Toronto. Myrah got OC business alumna Danielle Walker to accept it on her behalf.

“It’s been a privilege to be part of the journey of current and past students and witness their incredible growth and see how committed they are to community,” Myrah said in a press release. “Fostering the next generation of leaders has been a highlight of my academic career.

“I also want to recognize my mom, my first mentor who instilled confidence in me, always encouraging me to challenge myself, and to use my skills to make a difference and support others.”
