On Thursday, the Women's Executive Network (WXN) released its annual awards for Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women, celebrating the accomplishments of female leaders from across the country who have advocated for diversity in the workforce, and who continue to serve as an inspiration for the next generation of leaders.
And two of TD's top executives were among the outstanding women honoured at the annual WXN gala in Toronto on Thursday evening.
TD's own Norie Campbell, Group Head, Customer and Colleague Experience, was one of 10 women inducted into WXN's Top 100 Hall of Fame, an award that recognizes women who have been selected to the Top 100 list for the fourth time.
"I'm proud to stand among such an impressive group of women and to have seen several of my TD colleagues be recognized over the years," Campbell said.
"We have made tremendous progress advancing women in leadership across the financial services industry, but the job is not done. While I'm honoured by this recognition, the work is ongoing and we must continue our efforts across the industry and at TD."
A steadfast supporter of diversity and inclusion, Campbell is the former chair of TD's Women in Leadership and is focused on increasing leadership representation of women from all backgrounds, driving success at all stages, and championing forward-thinking programs for all TD employees.
She now chairs the enterprise Inclusion and Diversity Leadership Council, which is committed to advancing the bank's inclusion and diversity goals and ensuring every single colleague and customer feels welcome and included at TD.
Barbara Hooper, Executive Vice President, Treasury & Corporate Development, was recognized as one of Canada's Top 100 most powerful women in the category of women who hold senior positions in Canadian companies, pension funds and co-operatives.

"It's important to me, and to TD as an organization, that we continue to open opportunities for women to advance in their careers, pursue their dreams and reach their full potential," Hooper said.
In addition to the mentorship and sponsorship she's engaged in at TD, Hooper is also a volunteer for the United Way and Eva's Initiatives, an organization providing shelter and services to Toronto's homeless and at-risk youth.
Both leaders were honoured for their strategic vision and leadership, their dedication to creating positive social change, and helping women achieve the rewards of a fulfilling career, while working tirelessly to create a workplace culture that champions inclusion and diversity.
