“Our strength as women lies in our diversity, our complexity and the medley of our lived experience. Yet still, too often, we’re viewed as a monolith with a single set of ideas and a common worldview. On this global day of recognition, my hope is for a time when women’s individualities and intrinsic differences are celebrated as the cornerstones of a more equitable future.”

Founder & President, 1Milk2Sugars
Born and raised in Montreal with an East Indian heritage, Priya is the founder and
CEO of 1Milk2Sugars, a bilingual communications agency specializing in digital
marketing and public relations for global lifestyle brands.
Priya launched 1Milk2Sugars in 2012 and hasn’t looked back since. She’s grown
the agency into a multi-city operation with hubs in Montreal and Toronto and
has surrounded herself with a team of passionate doers known industry-wide
as “The Sugars.”
Priya’s passion for excellence has positioned 1Milk2Sugars as a rising star in the
business world. The agency has grown by over 300 percent in the last two years
alone and was proudly named one of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies by
the 2020 Growth List produced by Maclean’s Magazine and Canadian Business. In
2021, 1Milk2Sugars was certified as a Great Place to Work.
Under Priya’s leadership, 1Milk2Sugars has also been recognized with national and
international industry accolades, including a CPRS Ace Award for outstanding
brand development, a PR Daily Award for Best Content Marketing and Brand
Journalism and a Drum Award nomination for Best Use of Pinterest.
Priya is an outspoken advocate for equality who 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’s been nominated for an RBC Women of
Influence Award four times and was also bestowed 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.
