Together with the SaskPower Board of Directors and executive leadership team, Mike is dedicated to a clear, stated priority for advancing women leaders at SaskPower:
“SaskPower is committed to working towards a goal of a minimum of 40 per cent diversity representation around the executive table by 2021. Just as we would with any other stated business goal or priority, we must commit to a multi-year strategy for action within a desired timeline and work with a team of dedicated mobilization and amplification professionals in order to achieve it.”
