The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation (NSHRF) is pleased to announce that today Krista Connell, NSHRF CEO, was revealed as a recipient of the Women's Executive Network’s (WXN) 2013 Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards. Co-Presented by Scotiabank and KPMG, these Awards celebrate and highlight the professional achievements of women across the country in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors at a time when corporate Canada is under growing pressure to promote more female leaders into senior management and corporate director roles.
Since its inception in 1997, WXN has created and delivered innovative networking, mentoring and professional and personal development opportunities for women in leadership roles, growing into a sizable community of more than 19,000 members strong across Canada and Ireland. As of today, WXN has honoured 728 of Canada’s most powerful women and inducted 93 of these women into the Top 100 Hall of Fame.
“I am so excited to receive this recognition. I owe my professional success, as I do most things in my life, to the incredible and powerful female role models especially my mother and grandmother,” says Krista. “I share this acknowledgement with them. I grew up believing that my opportunities were unlimited and knowing that I always had their unwavering support. I also share this honor with the amazing and talented team at the NSHRF – with their efforts and support the possibilities are most definitely endless!”
