TORONTO—The Universal Women’s Network has announced that Skills Ontario executive Jennifer Green has received a Women of Inspiration award.
The awards were hosted virtually on Nov. 13.
Green, director of competitions and young women’s initiatives at Skills Ontario, was the recipient of the Dream Builder Award, which is given to a woman who “demonstrates that there is a space and a place for women who wear steel-toed boots to work or who has successfully challenged a world of work or industry typically occupied by males,” stated a release.
“It is an honour to be recognized by the Universal Women’s Network and to be among this group of incredible women,” said Green, who is a licensed mechanic millwright, in a statement. “I am so grateful to those who supported me on my path. This is not just my achievement, it’s theirs, too.”
“On behalf of Skills Ontario, we congratulate Jennifer for this spectacular achievement,” said Ian Howcroft, CEO of Skills Ontario. “She is a fantastic and influential leader, and her hard work and passion are truly inspiring. Her dedication is an important part of the effort to build the future skilled workforce, and we are very proud of her and her success.”
Green was previously given a Canada’s Most Powerful Women Top 100 Award presented by the Women’s Executive Network.
