Anne Stewart, a Partner in our Vancouver office, has been recognized by Women of Influence magazine as one of Canada’s Top 25 Women of Influence in the Professional Services category, announced November 13, 2012. The magazine, which focuses on advancing professional women, classifies “Women of Influence” as authentic leaders, inspiring role models, extraordinary achievers, catalysts for change and women who are engaged in life

“I’ve been blessed. I had lots of opportunities growing up; I have a lovely career. I think it’s important to give back to our communities,” says Anne. “I’m really part of the first generation of women who have worked their whole lives in a career and have gotten to a senior level. We don’t have a lot of mentors or role models. I was lucky enough to have one.”

Other awards Anna has been honoured with include a 2012 PEAK Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Association of Women in Finance, the 2009 Lexpert Zenith Award for women lawyers in business law, Business in Vancouver's 2006 Influential Women in Business Award, and the 2006 Canada's Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award in the professionals category, presented by the Women's Executive Network. She has also been named as one of "Canada's Top 25 Women Lawyers" by Lexpert magazine.
