On December 10 we celebrate the 2018 Top 25 Women of Influence and offer an incredible opportunity to meet Canada's Most Accomplished Role Models. Join us in celebrating this inspiring group, with a keynote speech from 2017 and 2018 recipient, The Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
Included on this list for the second year in a row, for the last year Chrystia Freeland has been one of the hardest working Ministers in the Canadian government. With a once harmonious relationship with the United States facing a more tenuous future, her role as the key ambassador representing Canada’s best interest with foreign governments has never been more crucial. From tough talks on NAFTA with an unpredictable and ever-more hostile President Donald Trump, to dealing with conflict with Saudi Arabia over human rights injustice, Freeland’s job is cut out for someone with thick skin, bravery, and an ironclad resolve. We think she’s just the person for the job.
This year's Top 25 women represent a variety of sectors, career stages, and contributions to women’s advancement. Their unique accomplishments are impossible to compare against each other, which is why the Top 25 is designed as a celebration rather than a ranking. Community is more important than competition.
What do they have in common? They are all women of influence, who have left their mark over the past year. Some have reached impressive heights in their career, breaking through barriers to become visible examples of what women are capable of. Others are focused on supporting women and girls through their initiatives, both at a community level, and on the world stage. Many are giving a voice to the challenges women face in their life and careers, helping to initiate important conversations that can lead to lasting change.
