Several Queen's alumnae have attained a place on the Women's Executive Network's (WXN) list of the 100 most powerful women in Canada.

In November, WXN released its sixth annual list naming the most successful women in the nation. The women were honoured at WXN's Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards and Summit, an event that acknowledges the accomplishments of women, representing a unique array of proven achievers from all over the country.

The summit is a day of professional development, networking and celebration, offering women executives from across the country the opportunity to meet and learn from the most successful and influential women in Canada.

Under the leadership of WXN, an independent advisory board selects winners in eight categories: Corporate Executives, Entrepreneurs, Public Sector Leaders, Trailblazers and Trendsetters, Champions, Professionals, Future Leaders, and Arts and Communications.
