Future With Only A Few Doors For Some Should Change….

Updated: Jun 30

After reading the article below, I am realizing that over the last year, I have been blacklisted from the Canadian job market without the courtesy of being told. I have been in denial and reading about these women's story provided so much relatable content and insight.

Here are some experiences that this article helped bubble up about my life over the last1.5 year:

  1. I was interviewed for nearly 30+ jobs in a vulnerable state early 2022 during a personal crisis with a family member. These interviews turned out to be IP fishing sessions. The job I did take, I was forced to leave amid stalking and harassment concerns outside the virtual workplace. I also realized I am not built to hold down a job defined by someone else (no offense).

  2. I went to the local courthouse to get a "peace bond" against a toxic family member, who severely pushed me towards power of attorney for a home sale, and was denied, which I am told is not very often. There is no record of my being in the court that day that I can trace for a rationale.

  3. Security guards in my own building, where I have lived and served on the board for over 9+ years, suddenly began pretending that I did not live there; began ripping my own mail out of my own hands with "this is your mail? I need to see it"!

  4. My business intellectual property was robbed from my cloud storage and distributed amongst competitors like the big 4 consulting companies. Toronto Police refused to file report while telling me “Have you thought of moving?”, and “complainer needs help. She is complaining again”.

  5. Most potential clients I approached turned out to be fake companies inserted in my contacts for IP collection, or had conflicts they did not declare. On the other side, "potential enterprise business clients" pretended to be turned off and only wanted to chat on "gmail" accounts when I asked for NDAs to engage with their employer businesses, per the usual business procedures, risk mitigation and hygiene.

  6. I spent 3 years of my own time in research and marketed my advisory practice and business online. I was told "they are not mine" or that I am some kind of "teacher" teaching it to others or setting up some kind of non-profit - all lies. My business is not a non profit and never was positioned as such - these are lies propagated by competitors to justify theft. My business models and practice were my thesis - ultimately landing on a big 4 website with other brown women's names for it to be monetized while their tactics cut me out completely from the market. Ironic that somehow brown women are replaceable entities at our workplaces, while pets have a incredibly special place in our homes.

  7. I was told my business is no more and it has been "eaten" or "sold". Fake information to emotionally destabilize me.

  8. Every new revenue stream I identified over the last year was next day on someone else's or a large organization's website and people were not shy to let me know I was under surveillance in my own home by breaking in and moving items or taking/ destroying them. It did not matter what it was - sometimes it was shampoo that was dumped down the drain, other times a plant was destroyed that I had cherished for many years.

  9. I was gaslit by people looking to be "business advisors" for my business with false information and telling lies about conflict of interests, or due process which I already knew to be false info - did not stop them from pushing it in my face with aggressive confidence.

  10. I was even gaslit by Canadian NRC grants who provided other businesses 5+ months to reimburse the same grants, notified me I had 5 days to do so after approval and provide receipts for reimbursement - then promptly sending emails  stating I am "defaulting on the grant". Where did that money go in the end? I am not sure why they would bother wasting tax dollars in this manner playing games. When other businesses received approvals in April 2023, I got mine in August 2023 after submitting application in January 2023 during the actual first week of grant application time-frame with all the details.

  11. I was locked out of legal system as attorneys and law firms I approach were either already or subsequently "bought" and had a "conflict".

  12. I was intimidated with unethical, key store and spy applications on my phone for corporate espionage and stalking. Files and emails were deleted to remove my name from my work. I was even being threatened with fake "mental illness" claims from competitors who used personal information to create serious stressful situations.

  13. My Canadian passport was stolen and IDs used to stalk and intimidate me with fake debt and criminal records which do not exist.

  14. I was intimidated, drugged against my will, and tortured with electronic weapons in my own home through tampered food. I was told I was being primed for a life of prostitution and a “birther”, whatever that means. I was also being pushed to leave my spiritual roots.

  15. Each time I left my own condo, I was met with severe gang-stalking which involved people in cars/ trucks with dash-cams following me + attempting to run me off road.

  16. There were pictures of me taken in my own home, inserted into my personal cloud photos account, which I did not take! They would appear and disappear on timely basis hinting disgusting level of stalking for most of 2022 and 2023.

  17. I was never able to find an IP attorney and the one I did manage to retain took $40k in retainer, only to take the IP files and within a day let me know they can not help me, will need more money to explain why and they would “rather not waste my money to do that”, then offered to return only $18k from retainer. I intend to get the full $40k back. I have started IP litigation process against 20+ companies that have infringed my IP and continue to harass me to shut me down or force a human trafficking situation to "anywhere-but-my-home" to vacate my home. I have been coerced into moving to US or India or "where do you think your mother should have immigrated to instead of Canada"?!

  18. I also am hit with outrageous charges for essential services such as phone bills, with lies being told to me about contracts and service details.

  19. Approaching clients directly either produces no response, or response for delayed meetings which lead to IP being stolen and files being deleted from my data stores after theft, after severe stalking.

  20. There are highly specific timed emails and text messages that are inserted into my emails to send messages of following nature: “you are A”, “you are hunted”, “you are being turned into Tesla”, who I recently learned was robbed by enterprise competitors with more money until he died, “your business is eaten”, “you are dead”, “you are on tour to distribute IP”, “you are homeless” despite owning my property, "you are mentally ill" defamation by those without medical degrees working hard to attack my assets and willingness to build a business/ find funding, “you are disabled, go on government benefits/ collect cheques from Trudeau" (seriously!), despite being fully equipped.

  21. I have also been followed around with cameras in public places by strangers and encouraged to participate in prostitution or what sounds like, push to join human experiments by health clinics. When I don't comply with their “requests”, I am called "a cat" with more disturbing "we have many cats".

  22. I also have people encouraging me to commit suicide (to no end because I know the value of a human life and my own).

  23. My home and assets were being set up for "distraction creating" robberies.

At this point, I refuse to accept that a society would irresponsibly cut off smart and talented women such as those mentioned in the article, with high levels of ethics from tech world. This, at a time when we have an ethics crisis among our leadership. This, when we require an incredible amount of support and talent in tackling sustainability issues on the planet, poverty and hunger, entry into space, and extreme climate change.

I am not as talented as the women in this article. And I don’t have anything important to share as a whistleblower.

I come from a consulting profession which turned out to be wrong choice for me, and I realized too late. Selling contracts to deploy "as-many-people-as-possible" on a client site, even if it does not help solve the underlying issue, has never been my motivation.

I have created something in the blue ocean markets during the pandemic at the intersection of multiple crisis faced by human race. Turns out I found my natural talent in my 30s during pandemic, which some think is not my place or must not be justifiable. It attracted wrong attention in early stages and I continue to pay the price with health, mind, finances, body and career.

Some things I am pondering:

  • If the society is spending time and resources to target me in this vicious manner, how many other original inventors and business people are there that are suffering the same fate?

  • What type of future leaders will businesses and public sector produce when ethical women and minorities are cast aside for speaking up, creating solutions or bringing impactful issues to the light?

  • Who is funding and benefiting from these acts and where is the justice/ public safety system holding the culprits accountable? I hope "we, the people" are not the ones paying for our own residents to be oppressed by those who know the system well enough to manipulate and use public services systems/ processes to their benefit….

For what its worth, I will take a different path than mentioned in the article linked and am determined to build a monetizable business with focus on transformation, data, AI and circularity - not a non profit. It is noble to have ethical people run non profit; it is gut wrenching to push someone away from a high value add + ROI role or business model to do that.

Our society needs ethical people involved in development of AI, data and sustainability solutions now more than ever.

I look forward to finding like minded people to join the GoEmerald team. I hope to build the transform this community further. And more importantly, I hope to add tangible value to society, while also lifting myself up by putting my name on my work, while helping other people. Swapping one brown woman’s name on IP works for another is disgusting and should have no place as we work towards becoming a space-faring civilization.

PS. This is a deeply personal blog and I thought a lot before posting it on transform this. But then, the issue at core is ownership of IP and human rights, both along with ethical leadership. So here it is.
