CELEBRATE WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH!
October is Women’s History Month in Canada. It is a time for Canadians to celebrate the achievements of women and girls as trailblazers throughout our history. It is a time to learn about the contributions women have made that have shaped our way of life. Women’s History Month includes two important commemorative dates for women and girls: International Day of the Girl on October 11th and Persons Day on October 18th, the day in 1929 that Canada’s highest court ruled to include women in the legal definition of “persons”.Tuesday October 17, 2017

Picking Up STEAM – Why Diverse Organizations Win
Would you want to be part of a team that consistently comes up with the best ideas and innovations? Who always finds creative solutions to problems? Who succeed seemingly effortlessly, despite challenges and unpredictable setbacks? If yes, you want to be part of a diverse team!
It’s been well-documented that teams with different backgrounds, ethnicities, and gender do a better job of solving problems and strategically advancing their organizations. But diversity, especially in STEAM, means that recruiting, retaining and promoting diverse talent is challenging. Let’s talk about why diversity matters and how you can foster an environment where diversity is celebrated and leveraged as a tool to help your organization succeed!
