Electricity Human Resources Canada is delighted to have announced its new partnership with Women Leadership Nation™ (WLN) on International Women’s Day. This strategic alliance will offer EHRC members and Leadership Accord signatories with training, development and strategy support in their efforts to make progress in closing the Gender Gap.

Changing the gender landscape is not easy: it takes tactical and continued efforts to affect systemic change. EHRC’s vision in partnering with WLN is that those organizations who need support will be equipped with the knowledge and resources required to identify and overcome barriers that might slow the organization’s progress. WLN are experts at delivering holistic training, measurement, and tailored support solutions to help employers become not just more diverse, but more agile and competitive. EHRC members and Accord signatories will benefit from preferred pricing and access to valuable resources, created to help them succeed in achieving parity.

“Electricity Human Resources Canada is so pleased to partner with Women Leadership Nation to offer signatories of the Leadership Accord an opportunity to gain access to in-depth tools and training focused on supporting and sustaining diversity efforts. We know that integrating women into workplaces requires more than just opening the door to female employees … and that amending deeply embedded organizational practises and barriers that prevent your organization from closing the gender gap is not easy, especially if you cannot identify them. Our partnership with WLN will help signatories foster a deeper organizational awareness and understanding that will drive measurable change.”

Michelle Branigan, CEO, Electricity Human Resources Canada

“Organizations today are largely focused on solving individual pain points associated with the lack of diversity & inclusion. Very few are looking at the bigger picture. We are deeply committed to helping create unified workplaces”

Jennifer Ladouceur, President and Co-Founder, Women Leadership Nation

I think it was Bill Gates who said the Internet will not have an effect on society short term, but will have a profound effect on us long term. 

Long term versus short term fascinates me. Making the call for one over the other can determine the success (or failure) of companies today. 

Using Bill Gates’ long-term Internet effect example, means that business decisions about the Internet will not necessarily show short-term gain, but will show “profound” gain in the long term.

CEW 3 Perspective 400

We often learn how to look forward by first looking back, or at the very least we realize that despite our best efforts we have not truly advanced quite so much as we had thought. Sure, technology is rapidly advancing. That’s beyond question. But what about our approach to selling it? Have we changed that much in the last 20, 40, 60 years? Inevitably there have been advances and changes in marketing, the Internet causing the biggest shift, but many of the concerns and directives that have driven the distribution and marketing of industrial electrical products remain, or at least planted the roots of the concerns of manufacturers and distributors today. 

To gain perspective of the perceptions and directions of electrical product distribution in 1960, we turn to Edwin H. Lewis. In 1960 Lewis published “The Distribution of Industrial Electrical Products” in the Journal of Marketing.

To fully define electrical product distribution in 1960, Lewis broke his study into several categories. We will follow his direction and provide his insights on the industry in each of the categories he identified.
