2 Mins read

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Softchoice has been included in the 2023 edition of Women Lead Here, an annual benchmark published by the Globe and Mail’s Report on Business magazine, recognizing Canadian businesses with the greatest gender diversity in executive leadership.

Softchoice, one of only 90 companies earning this accolade, ranked on this list based on the percentage of women in the top three tiers of leadership.

“We are thrilled to be included in the 2023 Women Lead Here ranking,” said Karen Scott, Senior Vice President, People & Culture, Softchoice. “We believe that having diversity across our organization, particularly in leadership, offers a breadth and depth of perspectives that enables our people, customers and organization to succeed.”

“Recognizing businesses that are successfully tackling issues around executive gender parity is a crucial step in moving the dial,” said Dawn Calleja, editor of Report on Business magazine. “While more work is needed across the board, the companies highlighted in this list are examples to others in corporate Canada looking to move toward gender parity and, ultimately, build better businesses.”

“In making senior management appointments, we consider the level of representation of women and other diverse candidates, among other factors,” said Andrew Caprara, President & Chief Operating Officer, Softchoice. “I am deeply committed to making change so that current and future generations of women have an equal opportunity to succeed in the careers of their choice.”

“Our mission within our Leading Women employee resource group is to grow, support, and develop the women of Softchoice,” said Rebecca Martinez, Senior Director, Enterprise Account Management and co-chair of Softchoice’s Leading Women employee resource group. “We’re proud to lead the way in advancing women within our organization and are excited to continue our journey, focusing on new opportunities and programs.”
