·3 min read

EDMONTON, AB, Dec. 1, 2020 /CNW/ - CWB Financial Group is delighted to congratulate Kelly Blackett, Executive Vice President, Human Resources and Corporate Communications, on her recognition as a Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award winner. Acknowledging outstanding women across Canada who advocate for workforce diversity and inspire tomorrow's leaders, the Top 100 span the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. Winners are selected by the Women's Executive Network (WXN) Diversity Council of Canada.

"Kelly's leadership and vision is key to CWB's growing reputation as an employer and bank of choice," said Chris Fowler, CWB's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Whether we're navigating the newest challenge, celebrating hard-earned successes, or continuing our transformation to become the best full-service bank for business owners in Canada, we can count on her boundless energy to advance our inclusive, rewarding and high performance work culture. She's a passionate mentor, advocate and champion for diverse leaders, and extremely deserving of this honour."

The award marks a second significant leadership prize for Kelly after winning the Report on Business Best Executive Award in October, a new Globe and Mail program that celebrates excellence among 50 non-CEO leaders at the SVP, EVP, C-suite and equivalent levels.

A new video launched in conjunction with Kelly's win celebrates the role of women in shaping CWB's growth and progress as an employer of choice and destination for top talent in Canadian financial services. It features 21 female senior leaders from across CWB Financial Group, along with Chris Fowler, praising her advocacy for diversity in leadership. Inclusion Has Power is one of CWB's corporate values, and Kelly's recent awards reflect the company's work in the diversity and inclusion space.

CWB is proud to have five of Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award recipients among its leadership team and Board of Directors. Sarah Morgan-Silvester, CWB director, was most recently named to the list in 2018, following Carolyn Graham, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, in 2017 and directors Linda Hohol (2007) and Margaret (Peggy) Mulligan (2003, 2004).
