Ottawa On, Toronto, On… CATA Alliance has announced the new CanWIT (Women in Tech) Video Sharing Channel for Mentorship is being boosted through a Channel sponsorship and content creation collaboration with Tangerine Bank, a Canadian direct banking subsidiary of Scotiabank.

CanWIT National Spokesperson Dr. Cindy Gordon, CEO of Saleschoice Inc., and Tangerine CEO, Peter Aceto said, “Both organizations share similar goals and believe absolutely that mentors and role models are critical to a woman’s decision to enter the technology sector.” They added, “ A mentor’s input and guidance can help build the necessary skills and confidence a young woman needs to advance in her career.”

Tangerine will add role model interviews to the CanWIT Video Sharing Channel for Mentorship, as part of an outreach to help increase the number of women working in science, trades, business, technical and technology-related occupations and to encourage women already in ICT to stay in the industry and find a career path that is satisfying and enjoyable.
