Like several other women in this ranking, Ford runs a business that is certified by WBE Canada (formerly WEConnect), an advocacy group that links corporations that have supplier diversity mandates with female-run businesses that can assist in meeting them. “This has enabled us to secure a relationship with one of our largest accounts,” says Ford. “And it will open the door to other new opportunities with companies with a commitment to diversification of their vendors.”
