One of Infrastructure Ontario’s senior executives has been recognized as one of Canada’s most powerful women.
Marni Dicker, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for IO, has been recognized by the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) top 100 awards program.
“It is a great honour to be recognized alongside such an impressive group of Canadian women,” said Dicker. “For me, leadership is about paying it forward – sharing experiences, knowledge and perspective to help other women achieve their goals.”
“For these highly accomplished women, receiving a Top 100 Award means much more than recognition or a chance to share the spotlight with other remarkable Winners, it’s an opportunity to pay it forward,” says WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery. “WXN Top 100 Award Winners are powerful women both in their careers and their potential to transcend boundaries to have a greater impact on the communities around them.”
Dicker leads the Legal, Procurement, Strategy and Communications, Insurance and Records Management teams. She is also the Executive Sponsor for “Women at IO”, a group designed to equip women to be more successful, personally and professionally, and encourage a culture that embraces the value that women can bring to the business and community. She was recently recognized as one of Canada’s Leading Women in Infrastructure by both Women In Infrastructure and the Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships
“We are very proud to have Ms. Dicker on Infrastructure Ontario’s executive team,” said IO President and CEO Bert Clark. “She has exceptional experience in the private and public sectors, and is a leadership role model in IO and beyond.”
