The Forbes list of the 100 most powerful women in the world came out this week.

And there’s a Canadian on it.

She’s 45 year-old Sue Gardner – a native of Port Hope who is now based in San Francisco. 

Gardner is the executive director of the Wiki-media foundation and spends a lot of time thinking about new ways to expand one of the most-visited and well-known websites in the world..Wikipedia.

As for joining the likes of Hillary Clinton, Lady Gaga and Queen Elizabeth on the Forbes list, Gardner says she’s flattered – and her mother is very,very proud of her.   

Gardner is a  graduate of Ryerson University’s journalism program, who started out in print media in the pre-Internet  age writing  for “The Ryersonian” and  “The Eyeopener,”  two of the school’s student newspapers.
