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.
In just over a month, our current President and CEO Beverley Wybrow will retire from the Canadian Women's Foundation.
To celebrate Bev's outstanding leadership and devotion to the Canadian Women's Foundation, a fund has been set up in her honour. In lieu of a retirement gift, consider a donation to the Beverley Wybrow Fund that will help support transformative work to move women out of poverty, out of violence and into confidence.
We invite you to share your favourite memory or cherished highlight of Bev's career in the comment section below. These messages will be collected and shared with Bev in the New Year.
