Edmonton Mental Health Service Leader Recognized as One of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women
EDMONTON, Dec. 1, 2020 – The 2020 Top 100 Award Winners list for Canada’s Most Powerful Women was released today by Women’s Executive Network. This award recognizes the accomplishments of 100 outstanding Canadian women leaders, rising stars, advocates, trailblazers, and groundbreakers. Past winners of this prestigious award include iconic Canadian Women such as Arlene Dickinson, Margaret Atwood, Christie Clark, and astronaut, Dr. Roberta Bondar.
Among the winners this year is the Managing Partner of Insight Psychological and Edmonton’s very own, Dr. Hendriatta Wong. As a dynamic organizational and community leader, Hendriatta is a catalyst for real change. She helped to transform Insight into one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies by fostering a culture of inquisitiveness and continual quest for improvement in the ways which Insight engages and serves its clients. She helped to create positive ripple effects in our community by actively championing for critical causes, most notably women’s advancement, poverty elimination, diversity and inclusion as well as better access to mental health care and disability support. As a female leader and an educator, Hendriatta is also passionate about nurturing the growth of up-and-coming female professionals and has continually helped young female leaders advance their careers and leadership growth.
Hendriatta’s current advocacy focus has been on the need for more diversified allocation of government funding for mental health care in order that all Canadians, regardless of their socioeconomic status, can readily access care from a provider of their choice and through the mode that is most comfortable and effective for their therapeutic progress.
“Receiving the WXN Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award provides me with a bigger and stronger platform to advocate for causes that matter to me. At the end of the day, being ‘powerful’ is not about holding the biggest executive position, rather, it is about having the courage and will to use our abilities to make a difference in society every day – even if it is just a little bit and even if we are doing it alone, so that the world we leave behind for the next generation is better than the one into which we first entered.”
