The WiM Hall of Fame honours women who have made outstanding contributions throughout their careers in manufacturing. Each of the leaders recognized by WiM have exhibited a commitment to growing the voice of women and creating pathways for them to succeed in the industry.

Currently executive vice-president of enterprise experiences, she has held leadership roles in supply chain, retail operations, marketing, communications, philanthropy, sustainability, innovation and customer experience. In 2015, Farris co-founded Shaw’s first associate resource group, Women’s Innovation Network, which prepares and empowers women for successful and impactful careers that foster innovation and growth for the company.

Farris and the other honourees will be recognized at an induction ceremony and gala Sept. 26, at the WiM Summit in San Diego, Calif.
