MIMOSA CEO, Dr Karen Cross was honored and recognized as one of the 2023 recipients of the Atlantic Business "25 Most Powerful Women in Business" award
March 8, 2023
According to Canadian Women’s Foundation, 82 per cent of all Canadian women between 24 and 54 are employed, but only 15 per cent of Canadian CEOs are women. Their labour force participation rate doesn’t have a similar correlation in the c-suite. Which means that women are often excluded from leadership recognition programs. So we created one just for them.
Atlantic Business Magazine’s 25 Most Powerful Women in Business program celebrates businesswomen of influence who live and work in Atlantic Canada. Because the most striking characteristic of powerful women is that they don’t use power for their own benefit. Rather, they use it to empower others.
The shape of Atlantic Business Magazine’s Most Powerful Women award is a visual representation of the award’s meaning. It shows one arm raised up in celebration of the individual’s success while the other arm reaches out to support others.
Tonight, MIMOSA CEO, Dr Karen Cross was honoured and recognised as one of the 2023 recipients of our 25 Most Powerful Women in Business awards. On International Women’s Day 2023, this one-of-a-kind celebration of Atlantic Canadian women in business both uplifts and lifts up Canadian talent.
