International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. Marked annually on March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD) also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.
At PureLogic IT Solutions, we don’t need an excuse to shine a light on the work being done by women in Canadian tech. As a woman-owned business in a male-dominated industry, we lead by example. However, International Women’s Day provides a welcome opportunity to highlight those who should be recognized and celebrated.
This year our staff showed their support and participated in numerous International Women’s Day initiatives throughout the city
- TECHNATION International Womxn’s Week
- Invest Ottawa The F Factor: Fueling Womxn Founders
- Invest Ottawa Womxn Angel Investor Breakfast
- WiDS 2021 Virtual Awards Breakfast – A Year of Change: A Global Celebration of Resilient Women

PureLogic IT Solutions is proud to be at the forefront of accelerating the path of women in Canada’s technology sector. When provided the opportunity, women drive innovation and growth and play a significant role in shaping our nation’s future.
The campaign theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge‘. From challenge comes change. PureLogic IT Solutions is raising its hand high to show we are committed to #ChooseToChallenge in everyday life and throughout the tech industry.
