Women remain vastly underrepresented in leadership positions and across various fields of work. As a group of women in such careers, we hope to inspire the #NextGenWomen to pursue their fields without fear. To do so, we are creating an online resource where young women can read profiles of women who are currently in their career of interest, and even contact them if they have questions or hesitations. This will foster mentoring opportunities and create connections that will help immensely in their future endeavors.
Stay tuned for more updates from us! We have big plans!

Alyssa is a student and research assistant in International Relations at the University of Windsor. She has combined her love for education and travel into a career in study abroad programs, but outside of work she enjoys a good board game night. Alyssa’s goal is to see more women represented on the international stage. She hopes that this platform will inspire girls to build a community of supportive, ambitious women!
Natalie has recently completed her degree in International Relations at the University of Windsor and is working as a federal government employee. She has a passion for travelling and enjoys reading and cooking in her spare time. After working with The Liberty Project, Natalie hopes to continue helping women from marginalized backgrounds find employment and empower them through entrepreneurship. She hopes this can be a space in which women can support each other and share their experiences!
Corinthia is a MA in Employment and Labour Relations graduate from Wayne State University. Her passion and drive revolves in and around the HR field. She always brings a smile and a personable attitude to the table and wants to make sure women know that the dream they have is attainable. Outside of work you can find her studying for the CHRP designation, shopping and going to Disney. I hope to be able to inspire other females and provide them with the necessary tools to succeed. Be fierce and magical!
Dianna is Ottawa-based pursuing a career in communications and digital marketing. She believes emphatically in the power of mentorship and gives great credit to the many female mentors in her life who she feels lucky to have had help elevate her. She wants women and girls to be able to easily search for mentors that they may not have the opportunity to meet in an organic way, and explore all types of career journeys.
My name is Lauren Deneault and I work as a Laboratory Technician at the University of Ottawa. I graduated with a Bachelor of Health Science from the University of Ottawa and a Post Graduate Diploma in Diagnostic Cytology from the Michener Institute in Toronto. I have always loved science research and to be able to reach out to women who have taken their passion for science and turned it into a career is inspirational. I cannot wait to learn from and share the profiles of these exceptional women to all of you!
