About Us

The VOW is the Voice of Women… a weekly podcast that shines a light on inspiring and interesting women in Calgary, across Canada, and around the world. Through the sharing of stories of overcoming adversity, impacting their communities, learning, growing, and succeeding, our collective of listeners, storytellers, and sponsors seek to connect, uplift, and empower every woman to raise their own voice.

“By embracing our vulnerabilities through the sharing of real-life stories, we ignite the courage for others to do the same.” - The VOW

Our VOW podcast collective is a team of passionate professionals, committed to excellence in sharing the most powerful stories in an effort to create a community of support and appreciation of the value of the experiences of women from every walk of life.

An Inspired Project

Tanya Eklund is a Calgary-based, top-performing realtor specializing in luxury and inner-city properties. She has built her own successful real estate business from the ground up and triumphed over her own obstacles in seeking her success. She has cultivated a team of strong, powerful women who are committed to excellence in everything they do in The Tanya Eklund Group. Tanya believes in the ability of women to connect and lift each other up by sharing the stories of common experiences, triumph over adversity, impact community, and find success and purpose. She is a passionate advocate for female empowerment and takes an active role in coaching and mentoring women in her community to achieve their own success.

Connecting Through Storytelling

Each week, The VOW features a woman with a compelling story to share. It is through the telling of these stories that our team hopes to empower women to seek truth, authenticity, growth, and success. Throughout history, storytelling has been a tool for connection and knowledge sharing. The VOW leverages the power of modern technology to bring the stories of strong, confident, and powerful women to the people in our community who need the stories most. Together, through our shared experiences and unique life paths, we can amplify our own voices and the voices of women everywhere.
