Jessica Green of Cursive PR Named One of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women
Awards recognize female leaders in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors

TORONTO – (November 26, 2014) – Cursive PR is ecstatic to announce that Founder/Director Jessica Green has been named one of the Women’s Executive Network’s (WXN) 2014 Canada’s Most Powerful Women.
The Top 100 Awards recognize Canada’s strong, fearless female leaders who have become agents of change in reshaping Canadian organizations at the highest levels. Jessica joins an elite group of Top 100 Award Winners that includes some of Canada’s most iconic women trailblazers, such as Dr. Roberta Bondar, astronaut, Arlene Dickinson, chief executive officer, Venture Communications, Christine Magee, president, Sleep Country Canada, Kathleen Taylor, chair of the board, Royal Bank of Canada and Michaëlle Jean, former governor general of Canada.
“Being named to such a distinguished and accomplished group is an incredible honour, one that I share with my team and family,” says Jessica. “I am humbled and thrilled by this recognition and I look forward to being inspired by rest of the outstanding women honoured this year.”

 

 

Co-Presented by Scotiabank and KPMG, the Top 100 Awards celebrate and highlight professional achievements of women across the country in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors at a time when corporate Canada is undergoing pressure to promote more female leaders into board and executive office positions.

 

“Despite ever-changing styles and tastes, great leadership is timeless,” says WXN founder, Pamela Jeffery. “Top 100 Award Winners are a testament to the incredible range of female talent and leadership in Canada and proof that change is happening, with more women earning a place at the highest levels of Canadian organizations.”

 

Along with founding and running her own Toronto public relations firm, Cursive PR, Jessica is a tireless champion for a number of charitable causes. Chief among these is The Corsage Project, a non-profit that aims to provide an authentic prom experience for deserving young men and women who otherwise would not have the opportunity to celebrate with their peers due to the high cost of formal wear. In conjunction with the Believe To Achieve Foundation and Greenwin Inc., Jessica also lends her time to establishing social programs in Toronto’s high-priority neighbourhoods. In addition to this award, Jessica was a recipient of the 2013 Prime Minister’s Volunteer Award, and the 2012 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Kathy Cheng, President of WS & Co. and founder of Redwood Classics Apparel, was recently honoured as an EY Entrepreneurial Winning Woman for 2014. This coveted honour puts Kathy in a class all her own, and her recent feature in Counselor Magazine’s e-newsletter proves just that.

 

“This honor has reaffirmed that when it comes to expansion, we are doing many things right,” says Cheng. “At the same time, being a part of the program has given us a platform to leverage further growth in some very key areas. Our plan is to continue scaling the business and focusing on sustainable growth. We’re keen on providing more jobs on Canadian soil while reaching more markets on the international stage.”
