Ontario SEO is proud to be Women-Led

As a provider of digital marketing services, we recognize the importance of supporting diversity and inclusivity in the tech sector and are proud to be a part of this celebration.  

From her beginnings in wildlife conservation to mentoring women in the tech industry, our Director Kim has spent two decades breaking down barriers and creating access to opportunity for young women.  

It’s hard to break through perceived limitations placed on you, but if you pay attention to the women around you, you’ll see that we’re doing it, every single day. Don’t be afraid to blaze a trail and recognize your own worth! 

Empower change and celebrate success

Kim Atkinson and Erin Bury, CEO and Co-Founder of Willful

We came together as a community to discuss ways to foster a successful attitude, the importance of empathy, and recognize the collective efforts of women in the workplace. Keynote speaker Erin Bury, a tech guru and startup aficionado, shared stories of her journey as an innovator.

‘Change is inevitable and entrepreneurs are disrupting every single sector, so it’s always best to work with others in the industry to help us all progress and move forward’

Sharing Kim’s Why

Ontario SEO is a proud champion of Smashing Barriers supporting the partnering organizations in showcasing and celebrating women in London. I believe instead of asking why, sometimes you have to be the one to make a difference!

I was and continue to be inspired by my first role model Dr. Laurie Marker. She got tired of asking “why doesn’t someone do something?”. So she packed up her life and moved to the other side of the world to be the person who was doing something.

Not only did she teach me that one person can change the world, she taught me how to be a mentor, how to work with everyone and how to inspire others. 

Seeing you all here today makes me proud to be part of this community where we are working towards change by helping and supporting one another.
