OTTAWA, Ontario, March 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TalktoCanada, the company trusted by Ernst & Young, Novartis and Saudi Telecom for English language training online, is announcing its support for LEAF, a national Canadian charitable organization that works toward ensuring the law guarantees substantive equality for all women in Canada.
The sponsorship is a vital component of TalktoCanada's companywide position to pursue equality in the workplace, including promoting female managerial positions and career growth opportunities.
"With over 80% of our staff being women, we feel it is extremely important to make a difference and have a voice in the advancement of women's rights. As a Canadian employer and provider of language training online, we support the idea of equal opportunity and self-reliance," says Marc Anderson, president of TalktoCanada.com.
Anderson further notes that the prominence of women in the company has helped shape the success of the online English language training firm.
"Many of the students we train in English online are located in the Middle East, China and Eastern Europe where often women's rights are very different than here in Canada. Our support to LEAF is just as much a statement to the cause for the rights of women of Canada, as it is to women around the world," says Anderson.
