B.C. has its fair share of accomplished women working in the field of technology and a few of them are right here in Kamloops.
On Nov. 28, the Minerva Foundation for B.C. Women will take a moment to honour four women during the seventh annual “Women In” luncheon.
While four honourees were chosen for this year’s event, several others were nominated for recognition, including Kamloops resident Lynette Hughes.
In her role as vice-president, business transformation, Hughes led B.C. Lottery Corp.’s transformation efforts over the past several years, according to Minerva media liaison Trish Sisson.
“Through transformation and innovative technology, her staff enable the company to adapt quickly to changing business needs in support of ongoing revenue opportunities, operational effectiveness and regulatory compliance,” states Hughes’s nomination.
Hughes’s teams support gambling and back office systems operations, the modernization of the company’s processes, infrastructure and systems and the implementation of strategic programs.
Prior to joining BCLC in 2003, she provided consulting and training services in the information technology and construction industries, including the management of multi-million dollar projects.
She also taught at Thompson Rivers University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the University of New Brunswick.
Earning accolades during the Nov. 28 event are Laurie Schultz, President and CEO of ACL Services Ltd., Marija Radulovic-Nastic, vice president of Central Development Services for Electronic Arts Canada, Mary Sanseverino, University of Victoria professor and Stephanie Wilson, Mechanical Engineer for Hatch Ltd.
