VANCOUVER ISLAND, BC, Nov. 2, 2021 /CNW/ – The 2021 Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award Winners list was released by Women’s Executive Network, recognizing outstanding women across Canada who advocate for workforce diversity and inspire tomorrow’s leaders. Dana Collins of the Comox Valley has been named to this prestigious list.
The Top 100 Awards recipients were selected by WXN’s Diversity Council of Canada, with awards presented to remarkable women in 13 categories. Collins was selected in the Manulife Science and Technology category, in recognition of the varied roles she’s played in challenging the status quo for knowledge, and female empowerment within Canada’s forest sector.
“I’m honoured to be named amongst this illustrious group of powerful women who are all committed to inspiring change. In a country that hosts 9% of the world’s forests, I feel fortunate to work within Canada’s forest sector, building a career dedicated to the sustainable management of our natural resources,” says Collins. “Inclusion begets innovation and I’m committed to making the forest sector more inclusive. Given women make up approximately 17% of the workforce, it’s imperative that we break down barriers, uplift under-represented voices, and encourage women to pursue rewarding careers in forestry.”
