鍾蕙蘭女士 Ms. Connie Woo
Connie has been helping with the Chinese Canadian Legend Award Project since 2007 and joined the Asian Business Network Association in 2008. Every year since then, she has been delighted to spend part of her summer working on the English translation of the recipients’ life stories.
Connie currently chairs the board of Chinese Family Services of Ontario (家和專業輔導中心), a charitable agency funded by United Way and the three levels of government to provide critically needed counseling services in areas such as family violence, child abuse, depression, gambling and drug addiction problems. It serves over 5,000 families and individuals in the Chinese and Asian communities each year.
Connie retired from her Vice-President and Chief Information Officer position with Toronto Hydro Corporation in 2006. In 2007, she completed the Director Education Program at the Rotman School of Management. As a professional corporate director, Connie served on the Board of CAA South Central Ontario for twelve years, retiring in 2012. While on the board, she actively advocated for the environment. Connie found it an enlightening experience to work with the recipients of this year’s Chinese Canadian Legend Award. Their impressive achievements and their contribution to our community provide a full spectrum of what is possible if one sets one’s mind to it. She hopes that you will find their life stories an inspiration, as she did.
