Career Development Webinar "Women in Male Dominated Industries", presented by WIL Sask Chapter

Career Development Webinar "Women in Male Dominated Industries", presented by WIL Sask Chapter

The Saskatchewan chapter of Women in Leadership is excited to bring together a panel of women who have thrived in male-dominated industries. Hear about their experiences and how they have navigated the challenges of being one of few women in their workplaces to become leaders and role models for other women. Following our panel presentation, time permitting, we’ll break into intimate networking groups. In this, you’ll get to know a little bit about each other while building and fortifying your network of existing and aspiring women leaders. Speaker Bios: Shelly Lowe, RCMP; Director of RCMP Departmental Security, Retired Inspector Shelly Lowe has recently retired from the RCMP where she worked as an operational Police Officer for 25 years. She most recently was the Director of RCMP Departmental Security for six provinces where she led a team of over 100 employees. She has occupied roles in Corporate and Client Services, Professional Standards and Executive Management over the last 8 years, which has provided her with extensive experience in progressive leadership and workplace relations. Early in her career, Shelly led the way as the first female firearms instructor and public and police safety instructor for the RCMP in the province of Saskatchewan. She has also led large scale security operations for high profile VIP visits within the province, such as His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Secretary of State and former First Lady Hillary Clinton and Former First Lady Michelle Obama, as well as multiple provincial visits of Prime Ministers and Governor Generals. She also led the security operations for the RCMP for Craven Country Music Jamboree in 2013. Shelly has been an advocate and strong supporter of women in leadership within the RCMP and recognizes the need for more female mentors within the RCMP.
