Women's Executive Network
We celebrated the recipients of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award with a day of networking, learning, and goal setting—in style.
Our Emerging Leaders came together to connect, gain knowledge and insights about personal branding, and take part in a shared meditation and visualization exercise. In the end, they emerged with the tools they’ll need to succeed in the next stage of their careers.
A year unlike any other required a novel celebration for our Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award recipients. The She’s Mercedes Virtual Wellness Retreat gave the winners an opportunity to connect through a unique—and timely—shared online experience.
Though physically distant, participants came together over meaningful discussions about the challenges facing professional women in 2020, tips and techniques on how to stay connected and engaged while staying apart, and the ways constraints fuel creativity and innovation across sectors. The day’s discussions were punctuated by a number of activities, including a mindfulness meditation and a movement class, both led by award-winning wellness leader Eva Redpath, as well as a healthy lunch with Fresh Restaurants founder Ruth Tal.
A holistic approach proved to be the secret to success for the She’s Mercedes Virtual Wellness Retreat, which not only recognized our Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award recipients but laid the foundation for lasting connections between them in the years to come, as well.
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award winners were invited to attend a day of networking, female empowerment, and off-road driving at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario. The program brought them together in an authentic, poignant way, offering them the opportunity to connect with one another, as well as with the Mercedes-Benz brand. Through a series of interviews, they were able to share stories about their successes and challenges in a meaningful way.
2018’s inaugural winners were invited to celebrate at “Women on the Fast Track,” a unique experience that combined women’s achievements with high-performance vehicles. The program served to expose the winners to a different kind of high-performance setting, while providing them with opportunities to engage with, learn from, and be inspired by one another.
