McCarthy Tétrault Regional Managing Partner, Ontario, Godyne Sibay receives 2021 Outstanding Leader Award from Women’s Infrastructure Network
Last night at a virtual event streamed across Canada, Godyne Sibay received the pinnacle recognition of Outstanding Leader at the Women’s Infrastructure Network’s 2021 WIN Awards.
WIN gives out just two awards each year, to the Outstanding Leader and Emerging Leader, selected from 65 highly accomplished and influential women nominated from all facets of the infrastructure industry, both public and private.
Godyne is a Senior Partner of the Real Property and Planning, Projects and Infrastructure Group, and Regional Managing Partner, Ontario at McCarthy Tétrault. The Outstanding Leader award recognizes both Godyne’s 35 years of success in the infrastructure space – leading projects across Ontario and beyond that have shaped our lives – and the influence she has had in opening infrastructure sector opportunities to women. Over her career, she has helped to build not only critical additions to Ontario’s infrastructure but also building the cornerstones of our economy and community.

“Godyne is a sought-after lawyer at McCarthy Tétrault both for her ability to bring large complex projects to reality for her clients, with collaborative and diverse teams and innovative solutions, coupled with the deftness and creativity with which she fosters partnership between private developers, government and communities,” said Dave Leonard, CEO of McCarthy Tétrault. “At the same time, Godyne has been tireless in creating the capacity for women to succeed alongside her in the infrastructure sector, in the community more broadly, and for women here in our firm.”
Among Godyne’s contributions to the sector, she was instrumental to creating and building WIN itself, Toronto Commercial Real Estate Women (TCREW), and Women’s Leadership Initiative for the Urban Land Institute. Her contributions to our community are far more extensive, including current roles with Toronto Region Board of Trade, CivicAction Leadership Foundation, and The Prosperity Project.
