Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s celebrate the achievements, highlights, and progress of women, not just today, but every day. Women’s day is not about just women, but about embracing equity for all! When we embrace equity, we embrace diversity and inclusion for everyone. At a time to celebrate the achievements of women, we want to highlight some incredible women today that are a part of the EBH Community that we are lucky to have. From women working at E.B. Horsman to our clients, these women are making waves in the electrical industry.
I’m the Chief Financial Officer for E.B. Horsman & Son. My role touches every aspect of the business – human resources, finance, operations, sales, and strategy which is one of the reasons why I love it. Since I work with various people inside and outside E.B., Horsman, I have the opportunity to learn consistently. The role of a CFO is constantly evolving and can make a difference which I find very rewarding.
I am proud to be part of many of E.B. Horsman’s foundational initiatives, from introducing our profit share programs, empowering strategic planning, the employee survey, the best-managed application, the creation of the wire, and the DEI strategy. I am currently co-chairing the Gender Equity Network AD through Affiliated Distributors which focuses on creating awareness and conversation around gender equity in our industry. Recently, I have been fortunate to be part of the EFC board, Electro Federation of Canada, and I am thankful for the work they are doing on our behalf for our industry. I am very grateful for the people I work with at E.B. Horsman & Son. The men and women of E.B. Horsman & Son are the best in class.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
It is a day to pause and reflect personally on how far we have come in our own lives and to acknowledge all the women that came before us. Each of us has a story worth sharing. I love reading and hearing about other women’s stories as I find it extremely motivating and energizing. Women’s day is when everyone, men, and women, celebrate the accomplishments of women and inspires girls to know there are no limits. Representation matters and awareness matters – IWD promotes both.
Hi, my name is Jordie and I have been in the trades for about 3 years now I absolutely love it! I will be going to school in a couple of months to achieve my level 3 in electrical and I could not be any more excited! My journey in the trades has been very rewarding. It challenges me to achieve new goals, build up my self-confidence, and problem solves and become an active leader while learning foreman responsibilities. I feel fortunate to gain such experiences in a male-driven environment and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for my career in electrical.
I recently graduated from UFV with a Bachelor’s in Computer Information Systems and was also awarded Professional Communications Certificate. Over the course of my academic tenure, I have attained multiple certifications in Communications & Network Security. Additionally, I have made the Dean’s List times for my academic excellence through various semesters.
My role as a Product Information & SEO Specialist is really exciting. It is a great learning experience since I work with new technology and different types of e-commerce platforms & software. I enjoy learning new programs to optimize and implement them in our systems. I recently joined the EBH family and have been with the team for more than three months now, it’s been a great experience so far. Apart from my 9-5 job, I actively participate in community activities, learn new things, read, and be creative with my time. I love to hike and paint in my free time. Whenever there is a sunny day, you will find me outdoors dragging my friends to go hiking with me. I also like to engage in community events and volunteer whenever I can.
