Niagara-on-the-Lake's Dr. Robin Williams will be honoured at a special International Women's Day ceremony on Friday.

The ceremony, hosted by the Women in Niagara council of the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce, is meant to honour exceptional women in Niagara's business community.

Williams, who will receive this year's award, is the former chief medical officer of health for Niagara Region. The St. Davids resident also now serves as special adviser to both the provincial health ministry and the Niagara regional chair’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution task force.

In 2014, Williams was named to the Order of Canada "for her contributions as a public health leader promoting effective policies in early childhood development.”

The online event will also feature keynote speaker Vicki Saunders, founder of #radical generosity and SheEO, a global community of radically generous women "supporting women-led ventures working on the world’s to-do list."

The event will be online Friday at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
