Wanda gives back to the community and industry in various ways, including as a member of the Life Sciences Ontario IDEA committee. In recognition of her contributions she is the 2023 Volunteer award recipient.
“Wanda has been a volunteer on LSO’s Inclusion Diversity Equity Accessibility (IDEA) Committee sharing her knowledge to help build strong internal processes for LSO around the principles of IDEA. She also sits on the steering committee of the Building an Inclusive Life Sciences Future, a series of workshops aimed at developing a vision and action plan for inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) within Canada’s life sciences ecosystem.”
Wanda is also a donor to the Equal Voice Foundation, dedicated to improving gender representation in Canadian politics. The Foundation’s multi-partisanship highlights the advocacy and education of women from all parties working toward reaching gender parity.
She is delighted that politics is an interest she shares with her older son, Adrien. Wanda and Adrien were scrutineers for different parties in the 2022 Ontario provincial election and travelled to Parliament Hill in March 2023 to attend Question Period and visit with Members of Parliament.
As part of her commitment to being a settler ally, Wanda has been following Jenn Harper and purchasing Cheekbone Beauty products since 2019. So she was proud to be featured in Cheekbone Beauty’s 2022 Warrior Wisdom campaign
“…focused on empowering mature audiences to embrace their natural beauty and experiment with makeup. With three models between the ages of 40 and 60 years old, Cheekbone Beauty wants women to know that age is beauty, and they should show theirs off with pride.”
