CCDI Webinar: Gender inclusion

Promising Practices for Tackling the Topic of Women’s Advancement Head On.

Today, women account for over 60% of undergraduate degrees in Canada. In fact, they have accounted for more than 50% of undergraduate degrees since … 1980! So why are there only a fraction of CEO positions held by women? We have more research on the benefits of having more women at the top than we know what to do with, yet the pace of change is glacial. The truth of the matter is that gender parity won’t happen on its own.

Employers need to tackle this issue head on or nothing will change. Yet there is significant resistance to creating programs that target women…mostly from women themselves. This webinar will tackle the topic head on, and will present best practices on how to create a successful women’s advancement program to help achieve real change in our lifetime.

Who should attend:

  • General audience:  This event has been developed for all individuals who have an interest in understanding the fundamentals of gender inclusion and it’s current effect on the workplace.
