Behind every powerful woman, there are a lot of other powerful women

Last week, Eco Waste Solutions President & CEO Jean Lucas was named as one of  WXN’s Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women, in the new category, CP Industry Sector & Trades.

Of course we’re very proud of Jean and her two decades of work championing women in the mining, waste management and cleantech space.

But it’s also reminded us of all the other, fantastic, powerful women in our lives, starting with the Eco Waste executive team, the first all-female executive team in waste management in North America.

And we’re thinking about Sherri Stevens, the CEO of WXN’s Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women organization and a tireless driver for the recognition of women who are doing great things in the world.

But maybe most of all. we want to congratulate and celebrate all of this year’s winners: 100 powerful women and 10 Hall of Famers, who are making a difference in all areas of professional life, from engineering to literature, from healthcare to finance, and from legislation to entrepreneurship.

None of these women have done it alone, of course. The women here at Eco Waste, and all of the women in the photo above, have benefited from the women who’ve gone before, the women they work with, the women they count as mentors and heroes.

So, whether you were one of this year’s winners, or whether you’re making an everyday difference in your professional life – congratulations! You’re more powerful than you know.
