BCCTC “Woman of the Day”: Linda Mountford
Updated: Aug 5, 2022
To celebrate and inspire women in Canada, the BCCTC launched the ‘Woman of the Day’ Campaign (WoD) on February 25th, 2017, as part of BCCTC’s Women in Business event.
The campaign profiles a variety of women, from entrepreneurs to those established on the corporate ladder. The aim is to demonstrate the huge amount that women have achieved in Canada so far, to feel proud and to encourage women to be unstoppable.
Their interviews also provide an insight into the issues they have faced and their opinions on issues that women still face in business in 21st Century Canada.
As a sole owner with 1 employee, we are so small and I just work, work & work!
I am very fortunate in having a wonderful relationship with the owners of Truefitt & Hill and have never had any issues being a woman.
What advice do you have for others in business, particularly women?
Do your due diligence and wait for the right opportunity and partnerships. Be patient and success will follow.
Always ask questions and listen. Do your own research and make the best decision for you. This of course may be applied to both men and women.
Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
