Celebrating the powerfully empowered by redefining our relationship with the P-word
It’s a question we’re asking ourselves here at the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) as we celebrate the 2019 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards. In travelling the country as owner and CEO of PhaseNyne, the parent company of WXN and the Canadian Board Diversity Council (CBDC), I’ve found that many women don’t see themselves as powerful, and many others don’t want to. They might think that because they’re not a top executive or don’t sit in a corner office, they’re not powerful. They might also think the word “power” has negative connotations, especially when it refers to a woman.
