Facilitating access to Entrepreneurship for Women in Canada

Episode Notes

Over the years, women have made significant contributions to the tech industry, yet their representation remains disproportionately low. However, there has been a growing movement to encourage and support more women to enter and excel in the tech industry. 

Join us as we celebrate the achievements of women in tech and discuss how we can continue to create a more equitable future for all with Shadi McIsaac, CEO & Co-Founder of Ownr. Shadi has seen firsthand the value of entrepreneurship for Canadians to shape their lives, and that lowering the barriers to entrepreneurship is essential for the Canadian economy, community, and identity. Throughout her career, Shadi has sought to empower aspiring and existing entrepreneurs by equipping them with the   tools they need to focus on what’s most important — whether that be scaling their businesses or finding solutions to today’s global challenges.  

In this episode, Shadi shares experiences, challenges, and triumphs in the tech industry. We will also explore the initiatives and programs by Ownr aimed at creating   a more diverse and inclusive tech community.
