Today is International Women’s Day! A day where we celebrate women’s achievements in forging a path to a world that is more equitable, inclusive and that recognizes diversity.
At SVS, we encounter inspiring women daily, from our staff to our clients, from coast to coast to coast. These women embody the spirit of International Women’s Day through their leadership and the impact they have in their communities.
In our monthly ‘Women Crush Wednesdays’ (#wcw) blog series, we profile women who are at the forefront of their fields, all while balancing home life and the challenges of 21st century politics, environment, and reconciliation. On this day of recognition, we chose to highlight all of the wonderful women we have featured so far in this series.
Enjoy their stories- we hope you find inspiration within them!
