ICTC and Status of Women Canada (SWC) came together to explore a ground-breaking and innovative way to increase women’s recruitment, retention and advancement in current and emerging technology sectors. This collaborative approach brought ICTC, SWC, and six regional organizations together to help women enter decision-making and management roles and move up in their organizations or within the sector. Six innovative regional projects were launched and a national initiative was formed in Fall 2013.
THE WIT INITIATIVE ENCOURAGES WOMEN TO ENTER TECHNICAL OCCUPATIONS BY:
- • addressing human resources (HR) practices, structures, and measures; and
- • encouraging women to develop the necessary skills and take on new roles as managers, directors, C-level positions and members of board of directors, in order to ensure systemic change.
This project is funded by Status of Women Canada.
