One of “Top 100 of Canada’s Most Powerful Women” to Address GLBA Forum Luncheon  

Hear Doreen McKenzie-Sanders, voted in 2004 as one of the “Top 100 of Canada’s Most Powerful Women”, speak on overcoming obstacles and attaining goals on Tuesday, June 26, 2007
Named, in 2004, in the “Top 100 of Canada’s Most Powerful Women”, she is a champion for talented, accomplished career women. Born in Vancouver, Doreen has had a long career in business publishing as writer, editor, publisher and professor of journalism, particularly at the Ivey School of Business at the University of Western Ontario. Most significantly, Doreen is founder and executive director of Women in the Lead Inc., a national organization that publishes a bilingual directory and online subscriber database listing the resumes of more than 600 distinguished Canadian women. This project was started 10 years ago when she returned to Vancouver to “retire”. She is publisher and editor of three editions of Women in the Lead/Femmes de Tete (2002, 2004, 2006). She has received numerous awards for her “distinguished service to journalism,” the most recent accolades include the Peak Award – Association of Women in Finance (2007) and the Governor General’s Award in Commemoration of the Person’s Case (2006).

After 65 years of working in the business world, Doreen McKenzie-Sanders is still learning about what it takes to succeed. However, along the treacherous road to success, she has learned of few of life’s lessons which might be of value to you. Doreen’s experiences, many of them humorous, will benefit both men and women personally and your organization generally.
