Member of the 2015 EY WABN Class, Deidra Dionne authored an op-ed article last week which appeared in CBC Sports on the state of women in elite sports, describing how the high risk competition as an aerial freestyle skier uniquely prepared her to reach new heights professionally following her retirement from sport. Dionne is an Olympic medalist, lawyer and business leader.
She was matched in the EY WABN program with IWF Canada member Clare Beckton, who is Executive Director of the Carleton University Centre for Women in Politics and Public Leadership and author of Own It, Your Success, Your Life, Your Future.
Dionne is currently the Director of Partnership and Business Strategy at Cimoroni & Company, a sport marketing and consulting company.
