Kyndryl is the largest IT infrastructure services provider in Canada and the world. Women in Leadership (WIL) is a professional advancement organization for women. Recently, both announced an agreement that names Kyndryl in Canada as WIL’s first national exclusive partner. Through this unique partnership, Kyndryl will work with WIL to convene women across professions and industries. They will host programs, events and speaking sessions that promote professional development and gender diversity in the workplace.

Upcoming events

To kick off the partnership, Kyndryl and WIL will host the annual Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Forum. This event will be a full-day virtual event on June 1, 2022. It will bring together thousands of women including CEOs, C suite executives, public sector leaders, diversity experts, and thought leaders. Together, they will discuss diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. 

Kyndryl will also join WIL as an exclusive Presenting Partner at its inaugural signature series, “Women Powering Progress”. The series will launch this September, offering a look into the journey of C-suite women leaders who are customers of Kyndryl in Canada and the knowledge they’ve gained throughout their careers. Together, Kyndryl and WIL commit to supporting ongoing programming and events that advance women’s professional development and networks.
