Colleen Moorehead, Osler’s Chief Client Officer, has been named a Business Leader Champion by Catalyst Canada as it celebrates the Catalyst Canada Honours Champions for 2015. Colleen joins KPMG’s Bill Thomas and Enbridge’s Cynthia Hansen as this year’s honourees.

A trailblazer for women in corporate Canada, Colleen has provided support and mentorship to women in business for over 20 years. She pioneered Osler’s General Counsel Report, a first-in-Canada initiative providing clients with a snapshot of important diversity metrics and initiatives, which highlights the firm’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion. Earlier in her career, Colleen also co-founded the acclaimed Judy Project, a leading executive forum uniquely designed to support and prepare women who are ascending into executive leadership positions. More information on Colleen's contributions to the business community can be found in Catalyst Canada's profile.

“Today, we honour and celebrate these remarkable leaders who, by action and example, are accelerating the diversity and inclusion agenda in corporate Canada,” said Alex Johnson, Executive Director, Catalyst Canada. “Each one of these individuals has taken bold steps to create inclusive workplaces where all smart, talented people, regardless of background, have an opportunity to succeed.”

The Catalyst Canada Honours annually celebrate champions of gender diversity in Canadian business, recognizing the critical role of individual leadership in creating workplaces where women and men representing every dimension of diversity can be successful.

The honourees will be presented with their awards on November 10 at the Catalyst Canada Honours Dinner. More information on Catalyst Canada and the Catalyst Canada Honours can be found in its June 18 press release.
