Celebrating Champions of Women in Canadian Business
At our annual Conference and Dinner, Catalyst Canada honours individuals in each of three categories that reflect the unique and critical roles different types of leaders play in championing diversity:
- Company/Firm Leader
- Business Leader
- Human Resources/Diversity Leader
Recognizing that what’s good for women is good for business, these exceptional individuals are personally and visibly committed to the advancement of women, and serve as powerful role models for Canadian corporate leaders. Champions are exemplary leaders who have incorporated the principles of equity and inclusion throughout their careers.
Visit the Catalyst Canada Honours Champions page to learn more about the extraordinary achievements of current and past honourees.
Champions have the opportunity to expand their networks significantly, receive considerable media attention both individually and for their organizations, and bring attention to the business case for diversity and inclusion.
"I am humbled and extremely grateful to Catalyst for this award whose greater significance is that it lends vital credibility to the work that we do every day and serves as a reminder of the obligation to drive forward to a better future."
—2013 Human Resources/Diversity Leader Champion, Kate Broer, Partner and Canada Region Co-Chair, Diversity & Inclusion, Dentons Canada LLP
