Mike Rencheck of Bruce Power named 2022 Leader of the Year

December 15, 2022 | Ottawa, Ontario – Electricity Human Resources Canada (EHRC) is pleased to announce Mike Rencheck as this year’s Leader of the Year. Mike is known for leading his team to challenge their own biases and to provide innovative solutions for implementing equitable practices, strategies, and programs to benefit underrepresented communities.

“I have personally seen Mike frequently challenge his team to both think outside the box and challenge their own biases when it comes to talent decisions and assignments. I truly believe that without Mike’s leadership we would not be as far as we are in our DEI journey.” said Danielle Short, Director, Talent Management at Bruce Power.

The award will be formally presented to Mike at the annual Awards of Excellence ceremony to be held in Toronto on February 16, 2023.
