This International Women’s Day, I’m struck by the strength and resiliency of women who are lighting our way through this global pandemic. Whether as mothers, caregivers, or frontline workers, women have stretched themselves to new limits and have shouldered the weight of this ongoing crisis. On this global day of recognition, I’m grateful to women for being the bedrock of their communities and demonstrating through action what it means to lead.”
Priya Chopra – Founder and President, 1Milk2Sugars
Born and raised in Montreal with an East Indian heritage, Priya is the founder and CEO of 1Milk2Sugars Communications, a thriving public relations agency specializing in influencer marketing, social media and media relations.
Priya launched 1Milk2Sugars in 2012 and expanded its footprint within a year, making it one of Montreal’s only boutique agencies to penetrate the national media hub of Toronto. During that same period, Priya helmed the creation of 1Milk2Sugars’ social media division, giving her team a first-mover advantage in the now-critical digital space.
Under Priya’s leadership, 1Milk2Sugars has grown by over 200 percent in the last two years alone. The agency has been recognized with numerous industry accolades, including a CPRS Ace Award for outstanding brand development and a PR Daily Award for Best Content Marketing and Brand Journalism. In 2020, the Growth List named 1Milk2Sugars one of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies.
Priya has weaved her passions for diversity, social awareness and female empowerment into the fabric of her agency’s DNA. In November 2020, Priya launched her most purpose-driven initiative yet: double shot, a talent management division aimed at amplifying BIPOC and underrepresented voices in lifestyle marketing.
Priya’s outstanding professionalism has been recognized by the Forbes Agency Council, Bloomberg Canada, Ernst & Young and the Chamber of Commerce to name a few recent distinctions. She was also awarded the PR In Canada, Women in Communications Award in the “Founders” category for both 2018 and 2020.
In addition to being an accomplished business leader and highly sought-after communications professional, Priya is trilingual and a proud mother of three. She feels incredibly gratified to be fulfilling personal dreams in tandem with her professional ambitions and is excited for what comes next.
