From notable firsts to victories on the world stage, 2019 was a momentous year for Canadian women. It also saw grassroots initiatives grow, corporate cultures change, and businesses boom — all thanks to an extraordinary group of women.
This year’s Top 25 recipients represent a variety of sectors, career stages, and contributions — from athletes to activists, corporate leaders to up-and-coming entrepreneurs. Their unique achievements are impossible to compare against each other, which is why we’ve designed these awards as a celebration, rather than a ranking.
“Our goal at Women of Influence is to recognize and celebrate the diverse accomplishments of role models across Canada by bringing them into the spotlight.”
So, what do these women have in common? They have all left their mark over the past year: contributing to the greater good through their initiatives; using their influence to drive positive change; or reaching inspiring heights on a global stage.
To our 2020 Top 25 Women of Influence, and all the other incredible Canadian women of influence having an impact across the country, we see you, we salute you, and we thank you.
