Celebrate HER

Serena and I were nominated for Celebrate HER.
Celebrate HER is an Ottawa-based gender inclusive non-profit organization. Our vision is to facilitate greater social responsibility within our community. Our goal is to raise funds for charities and programs supporting women in the Ottawa area. Our mission is to raise awareness of women’s issues, support local programming, and honour amazing woman making a difference in our community, locally and globally.

I'm quite pleased about this given the good company Serena and I are in.  For instance, right beside our profiles is that of Jennifer Flanagan, co-founder, president, and CEO of Actua, an awesome Canadian outreach organization.  Virtual Ventures at Carleton is part of Actua, which I've been volunteering with for a while.  Each year, I give a workshop on computer science to the girls' camps.

We were nominated thanks to our work on Girl Develop It Ottawa, but as you can see on my profile, my teaching and outreach in general are being celebrated.

This seems like a great opportunity to highlight the best of Ottawa, and I'm honoured to be a part of it!
