What if the next step in women’s advancement is bringing men into the conversation?
Over the last 23 years, Women of Influence has profiled the most inspiring women who are blazing trails and breaking glass ceilings to achieve unprecedented levels of leadership and success. By accessing these role models, we have been given the validation that we too, can advance to the C-Suite in any industry of our choosing.
But beyond the drive and talent of the individual, the advancement of women into senior ranks depends on the willingness of an organization to support their growth. What is happening at the corporate level to respond to the systemic challenges that serve as road-blocks to the advancement of women? What policies are being put in place to address the gender wage gap? What initiatives are being developed to create diverse and equally weighted C-Suites and Boards? How are hiring practices evolving to cultivate a gender diverse and inclusive environment?
On September 28th, for the first time ever, we bring together both Female AND Male diversity champions to tackle the hard truths and help us move beyond these questions and get to the answers.
- Don't try to tell Mike Henry that gender equality is a women's issue. Not only is he Executive Vice President, Retail Payments, Deposits and Unsecured Lending, he is also the Executive Champion of the Scotiabank HeforShe campaign, a new global group that is committed to promoting inclusion and equality in the workplace.
- Philip Grosch, National Leader of Digital Services Consulting, is a recipient of the 2016 Catalyst Canada Honours Champion Award and one of Pricewaterhouse Cooper’s four global He for She advocates. Philip is also the driver behind PWC’s award-winning Women in Leadership program.
- Anna Tudela, Vice President, Diversity, Regulatory Affairs and Corporate Secretary, Goldcorp Inc., is also the recipient of a 2016 Catalyst Canada Honours Champion Award and a driving force for diversity within her organization and the global mining industry at large.
