In 2018, Mercedes-Benz Canada broadened its support for WXN by sponsoring a new category in Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards: The Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award.
Developed in partnership with the Women’s Executive Network (WXN), the Mercedes-Benz Emerging Leaders Award celebrates the professional achievements of women aged 30 to 45 who are at the mid-level stage of their careers. These women are seen as high-potential contributors within their organizations and have been targeted for successive leadership positions. They are passionate about learning and innovating, and have accomplished a great deal in their chosen fields.
Winners are recognized at the annual Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Awards gala, which celebrates high-achieving female leaders in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors.
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.
