Ratika Gandhi

Head of Legal & Compliance, Canada, Alcon Canada Inc.

I am currently General Counsel of Alcon Canada Inc., an evolving medical device company with a mission to help patients see more brilliantly. In addition to overseeing all legal and compliance issues for this organization within a complex industry, I am an active member of the Senior Leadership Team, which I find to be the most rewarding aspect of my role. My approach has always been to be a collaborative but proactive legal advisor, providing risk-management advice and embedding principles of sound corporate governance. I have repeatedly trained other executive members on fiduciary duties, employment law considerations, best practices from a diversity and inclusion standpoint and compliance issues. I am a champion of a “Tone from the Top” culture and work to instill principles of integrity and collaboration to facilitate strong performance results. I am also currently the project lead on Alcon’s global transformation initiative aimed to redefine how the entire organization worldwide, engages and contracts with third parties.
