We had such a rewarding day today at Randstad Canada, and were honoured to meet the team at Women's Crisis Services of the Waterloo Region, as we presented a $10,000 donation to them as part of the Women Shaping Business Program.
Through the Women Shaping Business Program Randstad wanted to build a platform for new female leaders to be recognized, and to do that we build a contest, wherein Canadians would nominate female leaders that they knew personally for the Women Shaping Business Award. Canadians wrote stories about how women they knew impacted the businesses they worked for, owned, or engaged with and their impact in their communities through charity work, coordination or inspiration. From that contest and by an independent panel of judges, Carly Kuntz the owner and operator of the Water’s Spa, in Kitchener-Waterloo Ontario, was selected. She was nominated by an associate, a woman named Donna Diebel.
Donna wrote a touching recount of Carly’s own entrepreneurship story, but also of the dutiful impact she’s made in the community she lives in. It was the growth of her business and her vision for the expansion of her community impact that swayed the judges to choose her.
As the contest stated, the nominator was given the choice of which charity Randstad Canada would donate $10,000 to, and Donna chose the Anselma House, also known as the Women’s Crisis Services of the Waterloo Region.
Keep on the look out for more from us on Women Shaping Business, while the campaign has ended for this year, we're already planning 2014's exciting activites.
