Senior Vice President & Chief Corporate Officer, Cameco
Alice Wong (Business Leader Champion) is an influential and respected leader who challenges the status quo by asking tough questions and pushing for fairness and progress. As Senior Vice President and Chief Corporate Officer at Cameco, one of the largest global providers of the fuel needed to energize a clean-air world, she is a tireless champion for the advancement of women in a male-dominated industry. Under her leadership, Cameco increased the representation of women in its workforce between 2014 and 2020, despite experiencing workforce reduction of more than 35% in that same period. During this challenging time, Alice worked with the Cameco leadership team to commit to advancing and retaining women, increasing overall representation of women from 23% to 25%, and management-level representation from 15% to 25%. In addition to her championship of women, Alice has provided leadership for first-collaboration agreements with Cameco’s Indigenous communities, helping the organization become one of Canada’s largest industrial employers of Indigenous Peoples. She is a true role model for inclusive leadership.
