October 27th, 2022 | Canada – SalesChoice is pleased to announce that our CEO, Dr. Cindy Gordon, has been awarded “Entrepreneur Of The Year” at the Women in IT Awards 2022, Canada.
The Women in IT Awards has been devoted towards recognising and celebrating women, allies, and organizations for their outstanding contribution to the technology industry in Canada. According to a report by The World Bank, women make up less than 40% of the total global workforce. The Women in IT Awards “Entrepreneur OTY” category recognizes female leaders of a technology, digital or e-commerce start-up who have demonstrated excellent growth in the last 2-years, with a coherent and sustainable strategy in achieving it.
“Advancing a company from a white page requires stewardship in finding the right talent who are both collaborative and passionate about building a company that has the potential to be not just good, but remarkably great. I am blessed with an incredible team, and rewarding customers that believe in our company’s vision and capabilities. The Canadian and Ontario government grant programs like OCI, MITACS and IRAP have supported my vision and made an invaluable impact on our growth success. This award is also a reflection of the strength of my family who support me unconditionally. The collective energy from a solid foundation of family, talent, customer, government and community support creates a world of infinite possibilities. I am humbled and truly grateful to be recognized. The mission of the Women in IT Awards reinforces that there remains much more work to do to secure a more diverse and inclusive world for women in the technology industry. I have always pollinated and shared knowledge and it is wonderful to know that there are so many worthy recipients and front runners, all committed to the mission of advancing #DiversityMatters.”
