  • News

Vancouver, BC (August 11, 2022) – GeoComply, a global leader in fraud prevention and cybersecurity solutions, is pleased to have received a Top 10 Diversity Action Award from The Global ERG Summit in recognition of its 2022 International Women’s Day initiative.

In March 2022, GeoComply celebrated International Women’s Day by hosting an Empower and Enable event at its Vancouver headquarters. Hosted by GeoComply’s CEO, Anna Sainsbury, the event brought together over 50 local women seeking to re-enter the workforce, change careers, or secure new employment. The event focused on giving back to women in the local community facing difficult circumstances, in collaboration with GeoComply’s non-profit partners.

Attendees were provided with valuable tools for them to use when securing new employment, including advice around resume building, interview coaching, and LinkedIn headshots. To ensure that attendees incurred no participation costs, GeoComply provided a child development and babysitting service, covered transportation costs, and provided food. GeoComply employee’s also volunteered their time and shared their expertise, insights, and best practices at the event. Attendees also had an opportunity to network with each other.

By equipping attendees with advice, guidance, and tools for securing employment, the event successfully created a sense of belonging and community for local women in the tech community. “Attendees left with increased confidence to pursue their passions and develop their careers,” said Robin Alexander, IMPACT Manager at GeoComply. “To receive a Diversity Action Award in recognition of the event we hosted is fantastic. At GeoComply, we’re committed to continuing to drive positive change in our communities. Excitingly, there’s lots more to come!”
