In this episode, I speak with the President and CEO of CAMH Foundation and champion of social justice, Deborah Gillis.
As a recognized thought leader on gender equality, diversity and inclusion, Deborah Gillis has dedicated her career to driving social change. Her unique blend of passion, strategic vision and entrepreneurial spirit is helping her lead change as the President and CEO of CAMH Foundation in transforming how Canadians understand and address mental illness in the workplace and society.
Deborah has received national and international accolades for her advocacy efforts and business achievements. In 2016, she was named one of Canadian Business magazine’s 10 Most Powerful Business People and was awarded the Foreign Policy Association Medal.
Born in Glencoe Station, her humbled roots have helped her create and trail blaze an important, dynamic and inspiring career that has helped thousands of people throughout our country.
She is fierce, brazen, and someone I cherish as a dear friend. I know this conversation will educate us and will light a fire in us all to push ourselves to reach our goals and to become more actively inclusive in all areas of our lives. Deborah and her work is a true example of what we can achieve when we all work together.
