Women of Influence

Current Issue Fall 2017 :


This year, we’ve brought back the Top 25 Women of Influence [Pg 33] after a two-year hiatus. It’s more of a celebration than a ranking — it was hard enough to narrow the list down to just 25 women with impressive achievements from the past year, and attempting to put such varied accomplishments in any sort of order was not a task we wanted to tackle. Telling the stories of these role models is not only one of our favourite things to do, it’s one we consider the most important. Journeys of success provide proof of a possibility — that sense that if she can do it, I can do it — that inspires so many women to strive for more.  

If you’re looking for just that sort of inspiration, you’ll definitely find it in this issue. After you’ve checked out the Top 25, don’t miss the story of Mandy Renehan [Pg 20], who built a multi-million dollar business in an industry that’s not used to seeing women lead. Or Ginella Massa [Pg 22], who for a long time didn’t believe she could be an on-air news reporter, because she’d never seen one wearing a hijab before. Thankfully, she broke that barrier, and we’re sure she’s opened the door for others to follow in her footsteps. We’re also proud to have Dr. Samantha Nutt, founder and president of War Child, contributing her thoughts on Four Women You Should Know [Pg 28].
