Growing up, Robert Rosen saw the important role his mother, Zita Rosen, played in the success of City Lumber. In fact, Robert often points out that his mother founded the business. Zita was an extraordinary woman and mentor who believed that all women have the right to choose their own destiny.
Robert helped MacEwan University establish a professional women’s institute in honour of his mother. He was also involved in the “Linking Education to the Future of Healthcare: A view from women in leadership” panel discussion. To this day, Robert continues to support causes for women and values the contributions his female employees make to City Lumber’s ongoing success.
