Our CEO, Dr. Amiee Chan is an accomplished engineer with over a dozen publications, 3 US patents, a PhD, and multiple award wins, mostly recently including the Women’s Executive Network Top 100 Award. She has led Norsat through innovative product development and financial growth, but she’s also passionate about encouraging a new generation of women to pursue careers traditionally dominated by men.
Recently Dr. Chan spoke to a group of young women at a Vancouver based elementary school about the importance of education and career development, using her own story as an example. This was a great chance for Dr. Chan to share her experience as a leader in the technology sector, and an opportunity for the young women to hear directly from the source what a career in leadership is like. The students were interested, polite, and asked some really great questions. We wish them all the best as they continue their education!
