Michelle Edge is the Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of the Energy Disruptors Movement Inc. Michelle’s underlying passion for the initiative stems from her desire to get the next generation of brilliant minds excited about future energy, to encourage women and young girls to embark on careers in Energy and Technology and to make sustainable, reliable energy accessible to those who are still living without. Michelle also sits on the Board of Directors as Vice Chair of Gems for Gems ; a Canadian charitable organization which empowers and educates women with the aim to create enduring change and end the cycle of abuse. An adopted Calgarian, Michelle moved to Canada from the UK after completing her Joint Honors MA in Law and Philosophy. From working in the Oil Sands with Shell, in the roles of Contracts Management and Category Management, to Co-Founding the Energy Disruptors Initiative, Michelle’s background has a solid foundation in Energy but her true passion lies in all things creative. Michelle is happiest when spending time with her husband and young children, reading and writing. She is most inspired by strong, authentic and determined women, namely J. K. Rowling and Emma Watson, who use their creativity to make a real difference in our world.
