Congratulations Stephanie Wong

We love to see our ladies succeed and gain recognition for their achievements! Congratulations to YWiB SFU's last president, Stephanie Wong for winning the HSBC Women in Business Leadership Award!

Stephanie was selected for her outstanding academic achievement and record of student leadership. At SFU, she helped establish SFU’s Young Women in Business (YWiB) chapter. Additionally, she founded programs such as the Supporting Our University Leaders (SOUL) Mentorship Program and GIVE (Generating Innovative Visions of Entrepreneurship) for Social Entrepreneurs.

Over the next five years, this prestigious award will be granted to four female SFU students and our very own Stephanie Wong is the first to receive it!  As a recipient, Stephanie will receive $10,000 per year for her final two years of her Bachelor of Business Administration degree. Way to go!

“It is an incredible honour to be the first SFU recipient of the HSBC Women in Business Leadership Awards,” said Stephanie Wong. “This generous award will enable me to further my education and dedicate my time to making a positive impact on the issues I am most passionate about, including building a more diverse workplace for myself and my peers.”

Well Stephanie, we can't tell you how proud we are to have you on our side! We have no doubt that you will make your mark, inspire difference and create a better workplace for all ladies out there. Congratulations again and we wish you luck with the rest of your studies! :)
