Women of Inspiration™ Podcast with Monica Kretschmer. In this episode, we speak with Lindsay Sill about her journey as a woman in tech, COVID-19, mental health, women supporting women, and inspiring path to success.

As soon as I discovered UWN and all of the great things being done to empower and recognize women, I knew being a national Ambassador was an initiative I wanted to get involved in. I’m currently in between jobs right now and focusing on taking care of my kids through the pandemic, so it’s a great time to give my time back to volunteering for things like this that align so nicely with my passions and priorities. I can’t wait for this year’s awards to feel the emotion that results from recognizing the talent and goodwill that we have in this great country. Lindsay is an Executive with a demonstrated history of working in the information technology and services industry. She is skilled in Strategic Partnerships, Management, Leadership, Team Leadership, and Project Management. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Victoria.
