Being the mother of two young boys has been the driving force in Jennifer Charron’s entrepreneurial journey. When she launched Logic Executive Search and Workplace Solutions, she not only set out a goal to help local companies find great hires, she wanted to set an example for her children to demonstrate the importance of helping others and contributing to the local community.
A UWindsor graduate of labour studies, Charron (BA 2006) is now participating in the EPIC VentureWomen program, giving her access to mentorship, workshops, industry connections, and tools and resources specific to her startup’s needs.
Her firm aims to assist community-based companies by providing access to an international candidate network. Its reach has so far proven successful in identifying and attracting professional and executive talent in communities across Ontario, with a focus in the not-for-profit, finance, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors.
“I feel so honoured to have developed a great network of female entrepreneurs and peers that I have been able to offer my support and knowledge and vice versa that I have gained knowledge from,” Charron says. “I believe that this program will provide me with a different lens on how I approach my business and has given me the opportunity to work with great mentors in different sectors of business and community.”
This is the second in a series of articles introducing the current cohort of EPIC VentureWomen.
