Sabrina is known for building high performing teams, infusing a culture of collaboration and best practice sharing within teams and cross borders.

A big focus for advancing women’s careers at Google Canada is to help them build their own brand and career paths, says Sabrina Geremia, integrated solutions sales leader and executive sponsor of Women@Google, a global initiative brought to Canada three years ago.

The search and tech giant began by hosting a speed-dating style event for writing biographies (bringing in experts to weigh in on ladies’ company bios) and a professional photographer to take headshots. This led to the creation of Google’s speaker database – a matchmaking service that pairs appropriate people with speaking events, she says.

“[Participating in speaking events] really helps you understand the industry you’re operating in and build your connections.”

Sabrina-2-200x300On top of the speaker’s bureau, Women@Google runs a mentorship program, roundtable discussion around career concerns specific to women, and is working with HR to highlight courses for career advancement (offered through Google’s internal .edu training program).

“Our role at Women@Google is to encourage women to access the resources available [and] have your own personal development plan: knowing where you…want to be in two, five, 10 years, and the steps you need to get there,” she says. Read More
