Congratulations to Anne Sado, president of George Brown College, who was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada on June 28. It is one of Canada’s highest civilian honours, established to recognize a lifetime of outstanding achievement and dedication to community. Anne Sado certainly fits that bill.
She became the college's first female president in 2004 and under her leadership the college has become one of Canada's largest, most diversified and respected colleges. It has more than doubled in size and broadened its international partnerships, among many other significant milestones during this time.
Sado herself is an inspiring leader and businesswoman, not only to George Brown College students but to the Toronto community. In the past year, she was named one of Canada's Top 100 Most Powerful Women for the second time by the Women's Executive Network as well as being named a Women of Influence Diversity Champion. She also received the YWCA's Women of Distinction in Education award, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal for her role impacting the socioeconomic vitality of the city through her work at George Brown and the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal for her work with the YWCA of Greater Toronto.
