The pandemic has created new leaders and heroes pushing innovative thinking and embracing change and transformation. We’ve become adept at managing disruption as we are continually pushed out of our comfort zone. Let’s make 2021 the year of championing this resiliency and embracing a transformation mindset!
Please join your hosts Claude Reeves, Country Manager, Red Hat Canada, and our Red Hat® emerging female leaders, for the 5th annual Red Hat Canada gender diversity night. Be prepared to be energized by stories from two new voices in our community forging their way forward during unprecedented times.
Cozy up with your favourite beverage to enjoy a keynote from Sally Armstrong, an award-winning Journalist | Author | Human Rights Activist who has braved war zones to provide a personal account of the appalling injustice waged against women and girls around the world. She has documented her experiences in many books, including her latest called Power Shift: The Longest Revolution. She was invited to give the five-part prestigious CBC Massey Lectures in 2019 where she discussed the contribution of women and why it’s critical to mobilize all genders to support equality. By honouring the female heroes through history, she wants to inspire us to make our unique contribution in pushing for equality in 2021.
Sally will be followed by a fireside chat with Inhi Cho Suh, General Manager of Global Strategic Partnerships at IBM, co-chair of IBM’s Women’s Executive Council and TedTalks Alumnus. Liv Stewart, Account Executive, Red Hat Canada, will moderate a fireside chat with Inhi to highlight the best practices IBM is championing to support women during the pandemic.
We have other surprises in store. Don’t miss this opportunity to join together with our Red Hat community to catch up, be inspired, share your story, and celebrate the strength of the women in Canadian tech.
Who should attend: This is an invitation-only event for tech leaders of all generations and genders. Feel free to invite a friend (please have them register separately).
