The X Factor: Why the World Needs More Women Leaders
A Presentation by Katherine Emberly, President of Business, Brand and Communications at Shaw Communications
Katherine Emberly is the most senior female executive in the senior management team of Shaw Communications and a leader in Canada’s digital economy. She leads the Shaw Business, Brand, Sponsorship, Media Relations, and Internal Communications teams.
Building a successful career in advertising and telecommunications has taught her some profound lessons about the specific — and indispensable — qualities that female leaders bring to their organizations. It has also given her a superb perspective on what it takes to be a female business leader. Above all, she believes women must be authentic to their natures to make a meaningful contribution in business. Her view of the power and the imperative of women’s leadership is forthright and inspiring.
Katherine will be the next speaker in the WCT/ITAC Women in Leadership event. It will also serve as the kick-off event for the WCT National Capital Region Chapter’s 2019-2020 season.
At this event, you will:
- Get inspired to step up in your career — the world needs more female leaders at the table.
- Learn how to remove the voices of others from your head and listen to your most critical mentor — yourself.
- Make genuine connections with other leaders in your community to share your challenges, solutions, and stories.
