Enactus Canada named Natalie Suzor, a member of the organization’s UWindsor chapter, its HSBC Woman Entrepreneurial Leader of the Year.
Graduating this spring from the international relations and development studies program, Suzor served as co-project manager for the Liberty Project, a social enterprise which employs women overcoming trauma to produce reusable menstrual pads.
“I’m honoured to receive this award, especially since there are so many impressive and incredible women in the Enactus Canada network,” says Suzor. “I’m also thankful for the chance to get to highlight the Liberty Project in the process. As a graduating student, I can’t think of a better way to end my time with the Liberty Project and Enactus Windsor.”
She received a $2,500 bursary to support her education and entrepreneurial leadership journey; Enactus Windsor received a $5,000 grant towards the Liberty Project. Suzor will also be paired with a mentor to promote her career advancement.
The Odette School of Business sponsors the student-run organization. Dean Mitch Field extended congratulations to Suzor on her achievement.
“This is very noteworthy and the entire university community: faculty, students, and staff alike are proud of your accomplishment,” he said. “You and the entire Enactus team continue to demonstrate the excellent calibre of UWindsor students to the broader community. Please keep up the excellent work!”
