Danone Canada announced its Danone “Lead and Inspire Female Talent” (LIFT) award to celebrate International Women’s Day.
The award is established with Schulich School of Business at York University.
The award will recognize a female student that demonstrates leadership skills outlined by Danone.
"International Women's Day celebrates women's achievements, while highlighting the benefits of a more gender-balanced world. This is the ideal moment to recognize emerging female leaders who, like Danone, use their leadership as a force for good," says Melanie Lebel, vice president of human resources at Danone.
Danone also established an employee resource group to support women’s leadership at Danone Canada.
