CCTT celebrates International Women's Day
CCTT
The Canadian Council of Technicians and Technologists (CCTT) is pleased to celebrate the achievements of women in Canada and around the world. Each year, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911.

International Women’s Day celebrates the social, political and economic achievements of women while focusing world attention on areas requiring further action. The new millennium has brought about significant change and a shift in attitude towards women. We now have female astronauts, Corporate CEO’s and Prime Ministers.

"CCTT supports the achievements made by women in today’s society," said Isidore J. LeBlond, President and CEO. "We recognize the impact women have made on our society. Women today can work and raise a family, women today have real choices."

CCTT is a national association representing the interests of applied science and engineering technology workers in Canada and working abroad. CCTT launched its very own GoTECHgirl Campaign back in 2008 aimed at attracting young woman (grades 7-8-9) into technology careers.
