WCM Names New Additions to Board-Ready Directory

WCM| September 19, 2018

WCM is proud to announce the addition of 13 women to our Board-Ready Directory

Our directory debunks the perceived ‘lack of talented, board-ready women’ and provides board recruiters with a pool of qualified female candidates, to encourage greater gender diversity on corporate boards in Canada. Our goal is for it to become a resource for board chairs, senior leaders and recruiters to identify and locate women who are eminently qualified to sit on public, crown, private, and not-for-profit Boards of Directors.

The Additions Are:

  • Mari Jensen, Scotiabank, Global Banking & Markets
  • Diana Bristow, Bellwether Investment Management
  • Samantha Cheung
  • Janine Guenther, CIBC Wood Gundy
  • Tanya Covassin, Community Trust Corporation
  • Catherine Heath, Leith Wheeler Investment Counsel Ltd
  • Beryl McCallum, LDIC Inc.
  • Teresa (Terri) Troy, Retired CEO
  • Marie-Josee Turmel, Investment Management Consulting
  • Harleen Bains, RBC Capital Markets
  • Dee Patterson, West Park Healthcare Centre
  • Jenifer Bartman, Jenifer Bartman Business Advisory Services
  • Sheryl Holmes, CIBC
