As a community, we come together to connect, to reflect, and to celebrate our collective progress in creating a diverse and inclusive defence and security community.
We do this because it’s important.
It’s important that we provide women with a network that empowers them to be their whole selves. At WiDS, we’re proud of the work we are doing to ensure women are well supported throughout their careers.
But there is still work to be done.
As an industry, we need to make a collective effort and commitment to attract, retain, and promote women: to show our commitment to supporting women in leadership; to encouraging educational pursuits and lifelong learning; to creating connections and recognizing excellence – all of which are the core of WiDS values.
With that said, we are excited to kick off a new campaign centered on just that: recognizing excellence and celebrating emerging leaders.
What is an emerging leader?
Someone – in any stage of their career – who is doing great things; someone who is inspiring change; someone who is blazing a trail and setting an example for other young women to follow.
Please join us to recognize the incredible efforts these women are making.
And to Leonardo Canada, our Emerging Leaders Sponsor, thank you for leading the way.
