Women in Tech Panel at Scotiabank's Digital Factory

JLL Women in Tech Panel Discussion


Beverly Horii, Managing Director of IA's Toronto office, participated in JLL's Women in Tech Panel Discussion last week at Scotiabank's Digital Factory. JLL highlighted YWCA's groundbreaking work, lifting young women's lives through the Young Women's Leadership National Program and YWCA girls' STEM educational spaces across the country.

As the design firm responsible for Scotiabank's award-winning, new Digital Factory in Toronto, IA was proud to participate in this event, including Beverly's design presentation of the space. "As one woman put it, 'we are all very lucky to be at an event such as this one.' Gender equality and women’s empowerment incorporates issues of violence, economic empowerment, political participation, and reproductive rights. Working in all these areas will truly advance gender equality and opportunity," says Beverly.
