We wish to announce the appointment of Sheherazade Hirji as Interim CEO of the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
As you may know, we appointed Mina Mawani as the CEO following the retirement of our founding CEO Bev Wybrow. We want to thank Mina for her dedication and contributions to the Foundation.
Sheherazade is a former member of the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Board of Directors and a highly respected senior executive with significant experience in the non-profit sector. She will guide us through this period of transition while we launch a search for a new CEO immediately.
We are very optimistic about the future of the organization we have built together. You can be confident that our team remains strong and that women and girls across Canada will continue to receive the support they need through our funded programs.
From all of us at the Canadian Women’s Foundation, thank you for your continued support and for your passion for helping women and girls.
If you have any questions, we warmly invite you to contact us or Sheherazade.
Julie George and Patricia Rossi
Co-chairs, Board of Directors, Canadian Women’s Foundation
