Champions selected for advancing progress in gender diversity

Toronto-based Women in Capital Markets (WCM) has recognized 16 corporate leaders as Champions of Change, the non-profit announced on Wednesday.

“Our Champions of Change, like those we are honouring today, are a critical driving force in innovating a new approach to gender diversity,” says Camilla Sutton, president and CEO of WCM, in a statement.

“Each Champion has been selected for their work, commitment and creativity in advancing progress,” she adds. “As our Gala’s theme suggests, this is a watershed moment and one that if leveraged with a new approach to change, can catapult Canada to the forefront of driving the labour force of tomorrow.”

Our 2018 Champions of Change have pushed the boundaries for the advancement of women in the Canadian economy and have been committed to increasing women's representation in corporate Canada's leadership teams and boardrooms. These Champions of Change were honoured at our WCM Gala in Toronto on April 19, 2018 (view highlights).
