CIOCAN’s International Women’s Day Feature

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action to accelerate women’s equality.

This year’s IWD theme is #BreakTheBias. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can break the bias in our communities. We can break the bias in our workplaces. We can break the bias in our schools, colleges and universities. Together, we can forge women’s equality. Together, we can all break the bias – on International Women’s Day and beyond.

We have curated and created videos, articles, blogs and podcasts featuring Women In Technology. Thank you to our partners who shared their content with us. Enjoy. And Happy International Women’s Day to all CIOCAN members. Together, we are stronger.

CIOCAN was founded by a visionary woman 20+ years ago

Dr. Catherine Aczel Boivie founded the CIO Association of Canada more than two decades ago as a way for IT leaders to learn from each other and move the professional forward together.
