Microsoft Canada is honoring International Women’s Day, which takes place on March 8, with portraits of some of the company’s female leaders alongside notable Canadian women.

The company revealed a series of photos Thursday night depicting successful Canadian women who’ve used Microsoft technology to propel their careers or community causes. Each photo pairs a member of Microsoft’s leadership team with a Canadian professional or community leader from industries ranging from digital marketing and e-reader makers.

“International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women globally; what better way to mark the occasion than celebrating the incredible women who are making a difference with technology right here in Canada,” said Microsoft Canada president Janet Kennedy in a release.

Microsoft Canada says it holds diversity as a core philosophy. More than half of the company’s c-suite is comprised of women, and the senior executive team also includes many women.
