Annually, the Women’s Executive Network recognizes the leadership and accomplishments of 100 outstanding Canadian women across various industries, for their role in advocating for workforce diversity and inclusion, influencing change, and empowering and inspiring tomorrow’s leaders. The WXN Hall of Fame Award recognizes women who have demonstrated their impact, by winning a Top 100 award three times, and have been selected for the fourth time for their significant achievements.
In addition to being named a Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada, Faten has been named a Top 25 Most Powerful Women in Business, has been recognized by Women Get on Board, named Entrepreneur of the Year in Canada, a Woman of Inspiration, a Woman of Influence, a Woman of Excellence and a Diva of Colour, internationally.
Faten’s investiture into the Hall of Fame puts her in the same league as Canadian leaders such as Dr. Makaziwe Mandela, Susan Aglukark, Mandy Rennehan, and Heather Reisman, to mention a few.
“It is an incredible honour to be part of an organization that champions women leaders across our entire country, but to do so effectively across all demographics, industries, sectors and age groups is unique for WXN, and I am thankful that such an organization exists,” said Faten Alshazly, Principal and Chief Creative Officer of WeUsThem. “The Hall of Fame is a unique cadre of these leaders in our country, who have shaped the Canadian executive, for generations to come” added Alshazly.
In addition to leading a full-service ad agency, WeUsThem, Faten is also a Principal for HealthEMe, a new startup launched in 2022. In the community, she is the Chair of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, the first immigrant woman in their history, and serves on the board of Efficiency One.
“We have always been proud of our DEIA position at WeUsThem, and how our inclusive approaches have brought the best to our shores, while serving clientele on 6 continents. This could not have happened without the leadership Faten has shown, not just at WeUsThem, but in the communities we work, live and play in,” said Ashwin Kutty, President & CEO of WeUsThem. “Her tireless efforts are not lost on us, and her efforts being recognized with her joining a select few of Canada’s Top Leaders in the Hall of Fame is a true testament!” added Kutty.
