Breaking Barriers: Women Leading the Way in Tech

Listen On

As International Women’s Day 2023 approaches, it’s an important time to reflect on the progress made toward gender equality and the work that still needs to be done. One area where women continue to face significant barriers is in the fields of business and technology. However, with the increasing accessibility of technology and resources, more opportunities are becoming available for women to break into these industries and advance their careers. By leveraging the power of technology and advocating for greater inclusivity, we can help empower women to achieve their full potential and create a more equitable world for all.

On this special IWD-focused episode, we are in conversation with Nicole Eltom, Vice-president of Customer Success and Jodi Baxter, Vice President of 5G & IoT Connectivity Strategy and Product Development, both at TELUS. Nicole is passionate about her team, and through her authentic and collaborative leadership, she’s fostered a best-in-class team culture that is propelled by integrity, innovation and spirited teamwork. Nicole is a strong advocate for mental and physical well-being and is the Executive Sponsor for TELUS Business Solutions’ Health and Wellness program, while With a customer focus and understanding of how market trends and competition impact innovation and buying behaviours, Jodi is focused on supporting the delivery of 5G IoT solutions that improve the day to day operations of businesses, their employees and the end customer.

In this podcast, as we celebrate International Women’s day, they discuss the accessibility of technology to help women find more opportunities in business and tech careers and how TELUS supports this and the benefits of having women in leadership roles and how that is good for business.
