Breaking the bias
ATB spotlights women in leadership to mark International Women’s Day
By ATB Financial 8 March 2022 about 1 min read
According to recent data, women’s representation in small business and entrepreneurship is moving in the right direction but there’s still a ways to go when it comes to advancing gender equality at the corporate leadership level.
ATB recognizes the need to acknowledge bias and confront barriers to women's career advancement, both in banking and in the business community in general.
This year's International Women's Day theme is Break the Bias. To mark the day, we asked five women on ATB's Strategic Leadership Team to share a few words of wisdom on the theme or a quote from a woman in leadership who inspires them.
These women leaders, who work across a diverse range of portfolios at ATB, shared a few insights and quotes on confronting privilege and the limitations we place on ourselves, that left us feeling inspired.
You can hear from each of them below:
Lisa McDonald - Chief Risk Officer
Tara Lockyer - Chief People Officer
Camille Weleschuk - VP Office of the CEO/Government Relations
Ursula Holmsten - Executive Vice President, ATB & CEO, ATB Wealth
Denise Man - Chief Technology Office
At ATB, we’re working to help change the game for women in business. We're committed to breaking through the barriers women in business need to access the networks, resources, and funding they require to unleash their full entrepreneurial potential.
