About Women of Merit

Women of Merit is a premium publication honouring local women who have achieved notable success personally or professionally. Published annually by Lesley Warren Design Group, Women of Merit aims to inspire, support, and motivate women in our community to achieve their professional dreams by sharing the success stories of the women featured in the publication.

Our goal is to help women realize that they are not alone in the challenges that they face by celebrating the successes and sharing the stories of the women in our community who have already overcome those challenges on their journey to success.

By sharing the powerful stories of the women in our community, Women of Merit is helping to shape the identity of Waterloo Region. We bring to light the positive impacts and roles that women play in our community and inspire others to create a positive impact in the community.

Since our inception in 2014, we have been grateful for and overwhelmed with support from our sponsors. Our sponsors share our belief and passion that supporting women in our community is important. They sponsor women to be featured in the publication, write articles providing valuable tips and lessons, and support the publication through their generous donations. Our sponsors, participating women, and partners extend their support outside of the publication, helping us to build a supportive, intelligent, and inspiring network of women in Waterloo Region.

As we look forward to future publications, we will continue to share the success stories of the women in our community. Our mission is unchanged and our passion and vision for Women of Merit is unwavering. We will focus on increasing the diversity of the women that are featured in the publication. We will bring together a variety of stories to show the countless ways that the women of Waterloo Region are shaping our community, inspiring others to follow their lead and create their own impact in the community.
