Every year on March 8, International Women’s Day seeks to highlight and celebrate social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The accomplishments of the Telfer School of Management’s many prominent alumnae continue to inspire the next generation of students.
Polly Leung, Telfer BCom Student
This year we would like to highlight an exciting new student project, led by Telfer BCom student Polly Leung. The Women in Management Network (WMN) is a newly founded initiative at the Telfer School that aims to equip women to succeed in their personal and professional endeavors.
Jodie Harrison, BCom 1999
We would also like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Jodie Harrison (BCom 1999), the 2018 Scholarship Golf Tournament chair. Jodie is actively involved with the Telfer Mentorship Program and brings a wealth of knowledge from her nearly 20 year career with BMO Nesbitt Burns. Jodie was president of the Telfer School’s undergraduate students association and a former president of the Telfer Alumni Association.
Do you know an alumna of the Telfer School whose efforts deserve to be recognized? We invite you to nominate them for a Telfer alumni award. The nomination period closes on April 16, 2018. These recognitions will be awarded at the next Gala of Excellence, in Ottawa, on October 20, 2018.
