Join us for this special Invest Ottawa event hosted in collaboration with Thusha Agampodi, Director of Engineering at Aurora Solar.
Is there a place for me to advance women’s inclusion in the workplace? This question can spark a flurry of considerations, thoughts, and ideas on where to begin.
You might wonder, “What is the best role I can play? Should I attend the gender inclusion event at my workplace or step back and leave space for the women in my organization to gather?” The answers require thoughtfulness, tact and deeper understanding.
Evidence shows that when allies – especially men – are deliberately engaged in gender inclusion programs, 96% of organizations see progress, compared to only 30% of organizations where allies are not engaged.
We’re bringing you this conversation for the second time to help our community build a network of supportive and strategic allies who can understand the thoughtful and crucial role they play in achieving gender equity. You’re invited because we think your input is not only valuable in this conversation, it’s essential.
Because we are better together.
We are honoured to welcome the following leaders to our virtual stage:
- Thusha Agampodi, Director of Engineering, Aurora Solar; Host
- Oliver Fisher (He/Him), CTO, FreshBooks, ex Shopify, Google, and Microsoft
- Andy Kwak, Technical Manager, Magnet Forensics
- Susan Odle (She/Her), COO, BDO Lixar
- Pooja Suresh, Director, Research & Innovation, Gastops
Please join us for this important discussion. All are welcome, and we look forward to welcoming you.
