Their names will be included in a book, which will be released in September 2022. The Mission/Vision of this informative and educational publication is to highlight, document, acknowledge, and support the accomplishments of Black Canadian women in terms of their social, educational, political, and professional accomplishments. The goal: to inspire Black girls and women by showcasing examples of the many contributions Black women have and continue to make in Canadian society.


Camille Williams-Taylor has served as Director of Education for the OCDSB since January 2019. 


“I am honoured and humbled to be recognized alongside so many amazing women from sectors including government, non-profit organizations, law, finance, health and entertainment,” she says. “So many Black women are shaping and shifting this country and inspiring a new generation to take these accomplishments even further.”


Clarissa Arthur has been Executive Director of the Education Foundation of Ottawa since February 2019.


“It is an absolute honour to be recognized among such an established group of women. I believe we have a responsibility to light the way for those who will come after us and to give great thanks to those who have come before us. I am but one example of so many accomplished Black women in this country and I accept this recognition with great pride.”
