OTTAWA, June 21, 2012 /CNW/ - The National Council of Women of Canada
(NCWC) has approved an affinity partnership with Waterloo-based Mindr
Mobile to offer a Smartphone application aimed to improve safety of
women and others who use it.
Council members saw demonstrations and gave feedback on the app at the
NCWC's 119th annual meeting in Ottawa. "We Can Change Minds" was the theme of the
"I will certainly feel better with my Personal Monitor on the way to the
cottage," said NCWC President Denise Mattok.
Women are impressed that an ALERT can be proactively sent to their
friends or family by the app. Mindr Mobile's unique smartphone
application offers an alignment of values with the NCWC, increasing the
independence of women and their families, she added.
Mindr Mobile will also donate part of sales proceeds of the app to
support the NCWC mandate.
