Bold. Brave. Gutsy. Fearless.
However you want to phrase it, there’s a new attitude and #badass energy around the way women are claiming their spot in the workplace – and especially in technology. The 2019 CDN Women in the IT Channel Recognition Luncheon celebrated that spirit with an afternoon of networking, education, and paying tribute to notable women who helped set the table for the current generation of leaders. Ingram Micro continues as our founding sponsor.
Our guest speaker was author, podcaster and radio host Nora Young. Nora is host and creator of Spark, CBC’s national radio show and podcast about technology and culture. She helps audiences understand trends in big data, new technologies, machine learning, and more. She is also the author of The Virtual Self.
In addition to her presentation, and our traditional awards honouring three worthy industry veterans with induction into the Women in the IT Channel Hall of Fame, we will be recognizing Deanna Thomson, former Channel Chief with DELL EMC with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
As a result of nominations, we will also honouring Tanya Grant, Sales Manager, PCM, as the 2019 CDN Rising Star and Tammy Nyman, Executive Vice President MBC Managed IT Services as the CDN 2019 Mentor of the Year. Look for stories on these women soon.
