Calgary, Canada — September 26, 2023 — Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX: BLN), a global leader in connected safety technology, today announced that it is partnering with global development and humanitarian organization Plan International Canada through its youth leadership program, Girls Belong Here.  

Blackline Safety’s CEO and Chair, Cody Slater, and the company’s executive team are set to mentor a youth participating in this program. Over the course of four weeks, the youth will exchange ideas with Blackline’s executives during online meetings, culminating in a CEO Seat Share on October 13, where the young woman will take the leadership helm at Blackline Safety for a day.  

“As part of our ongoing community engagement initiatives, our company is committed to promoting science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiatives with youth. We’re also committed to advancing diversity and inclusion in corporate governance, which makes Girls Belong Here a perfect match for our organization,” said Slater.  

“Blackline Safety is constantly innovating and encouraging new ideas as we shape the future of gas detection and lone worker safety. We’re thrilled to be hosting a young woman who will share their fresh perspective on the future of technology and gender equality in leadership,” Slater added. 


The CEO Seat Share will begin with a fireside chat between the youth and Slater, followed by a tour of the company’s manufacturing facility. The youth will also participate in round table discussions with executive and leadership teams, where they will share their vision for creating inclusive and equitable workplaces. The late afternoon will include employee engagement to help achieve Blackline Safety’s $20,000 fundraising goal. Funds raised will go toward improving girls’ access to education around the globe. 

Founded in 2004, Blackline Safety’s all-in-one solution for lone worker and gas detection improves frontline worker safety and optimizes operations by providing access to real-time information so workers have the confidence to get the job done and return home safe at the end of their day.

Through the program, Plan International Canada offers girls a unique opportunity to step into the shoes of CEOs and other leaders from diverse sectors while sharing their fresh perspectives and innovative ideas.
