Women-led editing and proofreading company Scribendi is recognized on the Best Workplaces™ for Women 2021 list for the third consecutive year.

Best Workplaces™ for Women 2021Chatham, Ontario, April 5, 2021: Scribendi, a trusted provider of online editing and proofreading services, makes the Best Workplaces™ for Women 2021 list by Great Place to Work®. This is the third year Scribendi has ranked on the esteemed list, showcasing the company's continual commitment to equal opportunities on a woman-owned, women-led team.

To be named as a 2021 Best Workplace™ for Women, organizations must have been Great Place to Work®-certified in the past year. In addition, all listed companies must be headquartered in Canada and have a minimum of 15 female employees. Perhaps most importantly, 90% of the employees surveyed must agree that they are treated fairly, regardless of their gender.

Established in Chatham, Ontario, in 1997 by Chandra Clarke, Scribendi has remained women-led through its leadership transition to Patricia Riopel in 2017. Scribendi has also been certified as a Great Place to Work® since 2019, after obtaining extensive and anonymous feedback directly from employees. These employees are led by a balanced leadership team comprised of more than 50% women.

"One of my key values is giving opportunities to people not based on gender or race but rather talent, drive, and innovation," says Riopel. "This equal-opportunity mindset is paramount to my leadership approach. At Scribendi, women make many of our key business decisions and are driving innovation."

Riopel was recently named WEtech's 2021 Tech Woman of the Year, presented by TekSavvy, which recognizes, celebrates, and highlights women's achievements.

In 2019, Scribendi also secured a grant from the Women Entrepreneurship Fund, a federal fund that aims to assist women entrepreneurs.
