Lisa MacPherson Represents CGI and Women in the Workforce

We are very proud to announce that our Superintendent, Lisa MacPherson, was featured as part of the CTV News Special "Women in the Workforce", which aired March 25, 2017. Although the construction sector is still predominantly male, it is female workers like Lisa, who bring an incredible amount of knowledge, experience and respect to the industry by challenging the role of stereotypes in the workforce. Congratulations Lisa, for doing a phenomenal job representing female workers and for making CGI proud!
