Patricia Bonnel named one of the executives  for AQT’s first mentorship project “Women in IT”

Patricia Bonnel, Vice-President of Operations at EXIA, a leader in consulting services and in business intelligence and analytics products, will be part of the first cohort of 12 women executives selected to be paired up with successful entrepreneurs and renowned executives over a 12-month period. In addition to the knowledge transfer that participants gain from this type of project, the first cohort is especially important. At the end of this initial period, an external assessment of the project, including validation of learnings, will be conducted, leading to the final step—the implementation of a reference centre comprising support tools and a mentorship kit. The project’s main objective is to provide more women working in ITC with access to senior-level positions within organizations and to support them in their desire to grow professionally, thereby contributing to their economic advancement.

The “Women in IT” Mentorship Project is the result of a joint initiative between the Association québécoise des technologies (AQT) and Status of Women Canada.

The Mentorship Project is consistent with EXIA’s commitment to offer adapted development conditions to its employees so as to support them in their professional journey.
