MoneyTalk: Breaking down barriers for women in tech

Women continue to be underrepresented in the tech sector. A recent report showed that only six percent of tech CEOs are women, and women make up just 13-per cent of executives in tech companies. Kim Parlee speaks with two women looking to change that: Sladjana Jovanovic, VP of Online Technology at TD, and Jodi Kovitz, founder and CEO of #MovetheDial.


Jodi Kovitz has been named to non-profit Toronto Global’s board of directors.

The Globe and Mail

Jodi Kovitz’s daughter was two years old when she developed a series of rare infections that required months of treatment at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children. Ms. Kovitz has never forgotten the professional care her family received from the hospital’s staff.


When it comes to young girls and women in tech, it begs the question: can we believe what we cannot see? That’s the premise behind #MoveTheDial, a global movement dedicated to increasing the participation and advancement of women in tech.


Jodi Kovitz is a big name in the Canadian technology space. Having run a not-for-profit organization, Peerscale (formerly AceTech Ontario) and founded #MovetheDial, Kovitz is firmly at the head of it acting as global CEO. Her latest venture, #MovetheDial, was created in January 2017 with the mission of increasing the participation and leadership of all women in technology. She’s HRD Canada’s keynote speaker at HR Leaders Summit in Toronto.


Kovitz joins former Ontario Minister of Economic Development and Growth, Brad Duguid, and Think Research director of strategic partnerships, Tom Allison, as co-chairs on the committee.

Diversity and inclusion in the workforce won’t happen because you wish it – you must take action, says #MoveTheDial Founder & CEO, Jodi Kovitz


[Many] companies are now grappling with how to improve gender balance in the executive suite, on boards and in their recruitment efforts, while women with firms of their own are pressing to be taken seriously.


Organizations must design gender equality into the fabric of the business. Only through this “intentional design” approach can you create the kind of organization that women will want to join and where they will want to remain because they know it will afford them the opportunity to grow and contribute and eventually lead and govern.
