According to the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC), Canada's digital economy is growing steadily. By 2021, ICTC forecasts that 216,000 new jobs will be created in this sector, for a total of 1,637,000 jobs. Only 25% of ICT jobs are held by women. Many factors can explain this disparity, and TECHNOCompétences believes that one of them is the lack of networks, mentors and female role models in this sector.

To help buck this trend, the Chamber of Commerce of Metropolitan Montreal is proud to welcome, on March 14, a leader who is deeply committed to the role of women, particularly in the IT sector: Randi Zuckerberg.

Passionate about tech and media, the Harvard graduate launched Zuckerberg Media in 2013. With her company, Randi wants to further encourage women of all ages to take an interest in tech and entrepreneurship. To do so, she creates varied content to reach a large female audience. Among other things, she is the producer of Dot., an animated series with a tech-savvy heroine as a role model for young girls, as well as Dot Complicated, a weekly radio show on the business world. She is also the best-selling author of four books for girls and women, both to inspire and motivate them and to explain how technology and social media influence our lives.

In addition to developing content to encourage women to become entrepreneurs, she is also an angel investor. The businesswoman wants to play a significant role in identifying the next generation of successful women business leaders by financing their projects.

Recently, Randi was appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Social Media and the United Nations Foundation's Global Entrepreneurs Council, and was named one of the 50 most influential people in digital media by The Hollywood Reporter.

Over the years, the Chamber has welcomed many prestigious speakers as part of its Bell International Leaders series, including President Barack Obama, U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Prime Minister Manuel Valls, former President of General Electric Jack Welch, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Twitter co-founder Biz Stone.
