WiDS Liaison Committee

The WiDS liaison team plays a valuable role to the organization by connecting WiDS to key stakeholders in government, public safety and industry. 

WiDS liaisons' are volunteers who help communicate WiDS events within their organization and make sure WiDS is aware of relevant stakeholder events. WiDS has MOU's in place with some organizations, while relationships are just staring or more informal with others. If your organization is not represented on the liaison committee, please talk to you colleagues and supervisors - then reach out to WiDS to see how we can work together to promote the advancement of careers for women in defence and security. WiDS is keen in creating awareness, support and participate in round-table discussions on diversity, work-life balance, women in leadership, etc.

WiDS is interested in creating a group of industry liaisons. If you are interested in participating and helping define the role of this team, please contact wids@wids.ca.
