The 2018 honourees of 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women have been announced and Ryerson boasts a group of students, faculty, staff and alumnae who have made the list. The second edition of 100 Accomplished Black Canadian Women was launched on September 15 and was co-authored by Denise O’Neil Green, vice-president, equity and community inclusion. The book highlights and acknowledges the social, educational, political and professional achievements of Black Canadian women.

“As a writing team, we authored this book because we realized that often the accomplishments of Black Canadian women aren’t collected in one, easily accessible resource,” said Green. “Our hope is that future generations will be able to use the lessons shared in this book to inspire greatness in their own lives.”

The complete list of honourees is available online.
