One thing I know for sure is that diversity is an essential part of our country’s fabric. When a diverse group of people come together to make decisions, the outcomes are better. And we need to always be leveraging that fact in business.
Which is why, in 2019, after a rigorous approval process, I was proud to learn that my company, We Love Learning had received certification by WBE Canada.
Women Business Enterprises (WBE) Canada Council is a non-profit corporation. Created by a group of corporations wanting to provide certification standards for their supplier diversity programs, WBE works to build connections between Canadian women-owned businesses and buyers across North America. In fact, WBE has the largest database of Canadian women-owned firms.
Recently, I was interviewed by WBE for a Profile in Business. You can watch the interview here »
A few excerpts from the interview:
What problem does your business solve?
There is an opportunity for every business to think about how they can integrate eLearning into their employee support programs—and even into their customer support programs.
Most people don’t understand that eLearning is a spectrum of choices. They are familiar with one type of eLearning based on their experiences and don’t realize that there is a whole spectrum of solutions from which to choose.
Depending on what the learning goal is, who the learners are and how you expect them to consume training—you will make different design and deployment choices.
What do you love about being an Entrepreneur?
I like working with clients and becoming their partner in learning. I love solving problems and figuring out where those gaps in performance are and then finding an innovative solution that helps to close those gaps. The right eLearning solution will save the company money but will also be good for the employees—it will have a positive
impact on both.
Why does supplier diversity matter?
I think that diversity is a really important part of the fabric of our country, and I think that when decisions are made by a diverse group of people, they are better decisions because each of those people comes to the table with a different lens. In Canada, diversity is one of our greatest strengths, and we need to be always leveraging that in business.
