WCT/ITAC Women in Leadership Presents

A presentation by Katherine Emberly, President of Business, Brand and Communications at Shaw Communications

Katherine Emberly is the most senior female exectuive in the senior management team of Shaw Communications and a leader in Canada's digital economy. She leads the Shaw Business, Brand, Sponsorship, Media Relations and Internal Communications teams.

Building a successful career in advertising and telecommunications has taught her some profound lessons about the specific — and indispensable — qualities that female leaders bring to their organizations. It has also given her a superb perspective on what it takes to be a female business leader. Above all, she believes women must be authentic to their natures to make a meaningful contribution in business. Her view of the power and the imperative of women's leadership is forthright and inspiring. 

At this event, you will:

  • Get inspired to step up in your career —the world needs more female leaders at the table.
  • Learn how to remove the voices of others from your head and listen to your most critical mentor — yourself.
  • Makes genuine connections with other leaders in your community to share your challenges, solutions and stories.

This will serve as the kick-off event for the WCT National Capital Region's 2019-2020 season. WCT and ITAC gratefully acknowledge Nokia's support for this presentation.
