A note from our CEO:

Over the last three decades, Women of Influence has cultivated a community of members and partners across Canada, and beyond, centered around one important goal: driving equity + equality in the workplace. This is a transformational time, and I am honoured to be the CEO of this celebrated and respected brand. My priority is to listen and learn about what the community needs; what its challenges are; and where they see the biggest opportunities to create change now. The world is evolving quickly, and my aim is to ensure that we keep pace with this transformation to meet the challenges we face today head-on, and to prepare us for what the future brings.

Our events, content programs, and awards will all stay intact, and I’m excited to share that we’re adding a “+” to our name.  We’re rebranding to Women of Influence+ to underscore our commitment to considering how women’s experiences can be shaped by multiple aspects of their identity. Understanding intersectionality is critical in all aspects of society, and particularly in the workplace. That’s why it’s important for us to represent this in our name. We cannot work towards equity and equality without talking about and supporting intersectionality.

I look forward to celebrating many new milestones during this next phase. Welcome to WOI+.
