Women of Influence

Current Issue Spring 2017 :


This Spring, we’re celebrating inspiring Canadian women who have crafted their own success stories, on their own terms. Whether through the multi-decade journeys of beloved Canadian television icons like Debbie Travis and Marci Ien, to the displays of perseverance and courage shown by the 2016 RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards winners and finalists, these women are proven role models for the aspirational and the fearless. Truth-teller Catherine Reitman, whose new show, Workin’ Moms at times plays like a documentary of any working mother’s life, busts the mythical idea of “work life balance,” giving working moms permission to sometimes lose it – and find humour in that. Our feature story, The Old Boys Club, explores the effect antiquated gender perceptions have on women reaching top-level leadership, and we recommend our picks for the memoirs and biographies every ambitious woman should read in 2017.
