Diverse Women on Board and in Leadership Roles
|For decades, work has focused on advancing women in leadership and undoubtedly there has been progress. However, there are still more CEOs named Michael than there are women CEOs in Canada. Diversity Leads 2020 provides us with more telling statistics. In Toronto, where half the population is racialized, there are 12 times as many white women as racialized women in corporate leadership. And among 1639 corporate board members there were four Black women. Indigenous women and women with disabilities are almost entirely unrepresented. We still see many corporate zeros – those with no women on their boards.
For International Women’s Day, the Diversity Institute is taking stock of a decade of research on where we are, where we need to go, and what works.
Join us on March 8th, in partnership with the Future Skills Centre and the Ontario Chamber of Commerce, as we share practical approaches on how to move the dial on diversity on boards and in leadership roles to create more inclusive career pathways.
