MNO citizen Bonnie Butlin continues to enjoy outstanding success in the security sector. She is the co-founder and Executive Director of the Security Partners’ Forum (SPF) and International Coordinator of the Women in Security and Resilience Alliance (WISECRA). In 2015, she won the prestigious Professional Security Magazine’s Women in Security Award. Since then, Bonnie has received honours beyond the security and defence industry, which has included being a speaker in March 2016 at an International Women’s Day event in Winnipeg.

In addition to these accomplishments, Bonnie was most recently inducted into the “Canadian Who’s Who” – a reference publication published and distributed annually by Grey House Publishing Canada. It contains concise biographical information about 13,000 notable Canadians. The individuals listed are selected because of the positions they hold in Canadian society, or because of the contributions they make to life in Canada. It includes outstanding Canadians from business, academia, politics, sports, the arts and sciences.

The website states “In an industry dominated by her male counterparts, Canadian security professional Bonnie Butlin has emerged onto the international scene over the last five years as a trendsetter and respected thought leader.”

Bonnie also won CSO Magazine’s Compass Award and was announced as a finalist for the 2015 Executive Women’s Forum Women of Influence Award in the category of Private Solutions Provider.
