Behind the Scenes: The Women Researching COVID-19
WCT London is Recruiting New Board Members!
Are you passionate about helping women in London learn, building strong relationships and advancing telecommunications, media and technology?
London’s chapter of Women in Communications and Technology is recruiting three new members to join our board through 2019-21 (with the opportunity to extend if it’s of interest).
Being a WCT Chapter Board member is a great professional development opportunity allowing you to:
Culture as a Competitive Advantage
When it comes to corporate culture, most CEO’s can do a reasonable job of talking the talk. They can explain why corporate culture is important and point to glossy posters listing their company’s values. But, generally speaking, the state of the corporate culture is not a business indicator that executives lose sleep over.
Technology + construction + gender parity = a winning combination for Harbr Inc., a start-up just shy of its third anniversary
Gender parity in two male-dominated industries (construction and technology) is one of the major achievements of Nova Scotia-based Harbr Inc. The other is a technology platform, designed for retail owners, that acts as a project assistant to help coordinate contractors, vendors and suppliers across all projects.

Ready! Steady! #SpeedMentoring!
What do you think when you hear “#SpeedMentoring”?
My initial reaction was: intriguing and fun. Which was immediately followed by a few questions:
Promoting Diversity Through Inclusive Leadership
We need diversity; diversity drives innovation, and diversity is key to our growth as individuals, and as organizations. There is a strong business case for diversity, but to make it sustainable we also need inclusion. It is not enough to bring different people together, but we must create an inclusive environment that embraces people’s differences and allows every person to thrive. As individuals, we can promote increased diversity through inclusive leadership, without necessarily having the formal title or role of a leader.
It’s time to close the gender gap in tech
This editorial originally appeared in the Toronto Star on July 1st, 2018.
As we celebrate Canada’s 151st birthday, we still have not achieved equal pay or equal representation of women in most sectors.
As someone who spends a great deal of time articulating the business case for gender equality in the digital economy ( i.e. diverse organizations are better run, more innovative than homogenous ones), I must confess that sometimes it feels like I am speaking into a hurricane force wind. There are many, many days when it feels like no one is listening.
And then there are days like yesterday when the Finance Minister, no less, stood in the House and delivered these very messages with conviction and commitment.
