Mary Jo Haddad, SickKids President and CEO, named one of Canada’s Top 25 Women of Influence

Mary Jo Haddad, SickKids President and CEO, has been named one of Canada’s inaugural Top 25 Women of Influence.

The Top 25 Women of Influence celebrates the achievements of 25 women across Canada in five industry categories: Business, Health Sciences, Professional Services, Public Sector and Non-Governmental Organizations. Haddad was recognized in the Health Sciences category. The categories were chosen because of the exceptional impact that women are having in these areas, and the need for increased recognition beyond those concentrations.

The Top 25 were chosen from a pool of hundreds of accomplished Canadian women and represent a diverse list of women who are leading the pack. The women chosen are “authentic leaders, extraordinary achievers and exceptional role models for other aspiring Canadian women.” Candidates were ranked by quantifiable and measureable data, on their influence in their current roles, industry and beyond.

“Mary Jo's influence on the advancement of the child health system is evident through the progress that has been made right here in Ontario”, says Robert Harding, Chair of The Hospital’s Board of Trustees. “Her leadership and passion for children's health is an inspiration to us all. This is a well-deserved award.”

Haddad and the other Top 25 women will be profiled in the winter issue of Women of Influence magazine.
