Part­ner, Toronto Mar­ket­place Leader, Fi­nan­cial Ad­vi­sory & Na­tional Leader, Pro­fes­sional & Busi­ness Ser­vices Sec­tor DELOITTE LLP

Karen Werger fo­cuses on the ar­eas of dis­pute ad­vi­sory and val­u­a­tions, and is a mem­ber of Deloitte’s part­ner ad­vi­sory coun­cil, which ad­vises the CEO on key busi­ness choices. She is also the na­tional di­ver­sity part­ner for fi­nan­cial ad­vi­sory and, to­gether with CEO Frank Vettese, launched the Cana­dian Women’s Ini­tia­tive (canWin) at Deloitte. Werger re­ceived the 2015 Lynda Bowles Spirit Award for her ef­forts to help women rec­og­nize and achieve their lead­er­ship po­ten­tial.

“It’s al­ways im­por­tant to pro­vide your per­spec­tive, par­tic­u­larly when your per­spec­tive is dif­fer­ent from the rest of the group, be­cause di­verse groups gen­er­ate bet­ter solutions.”

“Spon­sor­ship is key. Spon­sor­ing more of our top-tal­ent women and en­sur­ing they progress at the same rate as their tal­ented male col­leagues. Not en­abling our top-tal­ent women to hold them­selves back be­cause they feel they aren’t ready for the next level.”
