Why was it important for your organization to sign Women in Leadership’s Transforming the Workplace Pledge?


"The emphasis on treating people fairly and with kindness extends beyond organizational benefits. It speaks to the broader narrative of creating a harmonious and supportive community, both within and outside the workplace.


In essence, embracing this transformative movement is not just a professional aspiration’ it is a commitment to shared values that resonate with the fundamental principles of equality and world peace. By collectively taking steps in this direction, we not only enhance the workplace experience for all but also contribute to a larger societal paradigm shift that prioritizes humanity and understanding."

Charmaine St Ange serves as the Manager of Delivery Services, a department at SAIT, overseeing a department dedicated to fostering transformative learning experiences that empowers people, careers, communities, organizations, and countries.
