Robert Watson, Chair of the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC), and Stephanie MacKendrick, President of Canadian Women in Communications (CWC) invite you to a unique opportunity for women in technology to meet.
So many paths…
For women, there is no ‘traditional’ career path to leadership in ICT. Find three successful women in technology and you will probably find three different sets of aspirations, three different educational backgrounds, and three different perspectives on the best way to meet the opportunities and challenges that a career in technology can present.
ITAC, the Information Technology Association of Canada, and the Canadian Women in Communications (CWC) will demonstrate this hypothesis at a special networking lunch for women in technology in the Regina area. The luncheon will feature a panel discussion among three members of the ITAC Board of Directors who charted their own unique courses to leadership in the industry. They will tell their own stories and exchange views about the contributions that women can make to ICT enterprises among themselves and with attendees. Stephanie MacKendrick, President and CEO of CWC, will moderate the conversation which will include Karen Wensley and Lally Rementilla. Karen recently retired as a partner at Ernst & Young. She is a highly respected expert on research and development incentives. She spent 20 years serving clients in a variety of high tech industries and to government, and, most recently, served as E&Y’s People Leader. Lally is an accomplished strategic financial management professional with experience in a variety of communications, technology and cultural organizations. She is currently Vice-President of Business Planning and Analysis of Lavalife Corporation, a leadership provider of technology-based meeting services for singles.
This is a special opportunity for women who are following career paths of their own to meet and learn from one another. We hope you can join us.
