Women's Executive Network Celebrates International Women's Day by Opening Nominations for Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards

TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/14 -- The Women's Executive Network (WXN) is thrilled to announce that in celebration of International Women's Day, Nominations for the 12th annual Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards are now open. What began as a means to celebrate and highlight the achievements of women in leadership roles has today become the country's premier leadership Award.

The Top 100 Awards celebrates the professional achievements of remarkable female leaders across the country in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Since 2003, WXN has honoured 728 inspiring women, inducting 93 of these women into the Top 100 Hall of Fame. These strong, brilliant women are accomplished, tenacious, driven, groundbreaking, agents of change, and remind us that nothing is impossible.

"International Women's Day reminds us that we need to applaud the achievements of women in Canada," said WXN Founder, Pamela Jeffery. "As we seek to inspire the future generation of female leaders, we must recognize the importance of having female role models for young women. It is for this reason that the Top 100 Awards are so important; they highlight the remarkable women of today, so that we can propel the future leaders of tomorrow into greatness."

Nominations are open to the public and each Top 100 Award Winner is selected by an independent Advisory Board. This is a great opportunity for Canadian organizations and individuals to shine a spotlight on outstanding women in one of nine Awards categories: Arts & Communications, RBC Champions, Accenture Corporate Directors, Scotiabank Corporate Executives, CIBC Entrepreneurs, TELUS Future Leaders, KPMG Professionals, Public Sector Leaders, Sun Life Financial Trailblazers & Trendsetters.
