Inspiring Fifty Canada 2018 – Inaugural Launch highlighting inspirational female role models in tech and innovation sectors on The Hill

April 30, 2018

Roberta has been recognized for her incredible achievements, which we believe make her a fantastic role model. The aim at Inspiring Fifty is to increase diversity in tech by making role models like Roberta more visible.

Research shows that a lack of female role models in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is a key reason girls do not pursue a career in the sector. What you do is important, and impacts the next generation in a positive way. 
The Inspiring Fifty Canada have been selected by a highly-distinguished judging panel, featuring business and technology influencers from within Canada and around the world.

Roberta’s expertise was instrumental in designing and deploying the CSPS voice, text and chat virtual contact centre solutions which has resulted in over 10,000 contacts and 100 lives saved since the suicide prevention and support pilot site was launched November 27, 2017.
