Lexpert celebrates Women in Law on June 22, 2017 at their annual Lexpert Zenith Awards .
Recognizing the advancement of women in the legal profession, Lexpert honoured Liz for her exceptional advocacy for women in corporate leadership, both by recruiting women to boards and supporting women in board and executive positions.
“In 2001, after a 20-year career in private practice, Elizabeth was hired to oversee appointments to all of BC’s Crown corporations. In that role, she instituted merit-based recruitment to hire exceptional women to BC public-sector boards, achieving 40 per cent female directors. Many women profiled during Liz’s tenure went on to serve in key leadership positions across Canada. Returning to the private sector in 2005, she established a boutique executive search firm known for providing practical, expert advice to boards of directors. Her commitment to getting women to the board table has resulted in enormous positive change for hundreds of women.”
