We’re shaping the future of women’s entrepreneurship in Canada
It’s 2017 and the number of women in the workplace, on Boards of Directors, and in business ownership is far from reaching parity. A recent report by McKinsey & Company Canada, titled “The power of parity: Advancing women’s equality in Canada” estimates that at our current rate, we will close the gender gap in 30 to 180 years. That’s a long time.
The Canadian Women’s Chamber of Commerce is committed to changing that number – and not by a little.
Our vision is an equitable opportunity for every Canadian woman entrepreneur in a diverse, inclusive, and thriving national and international economy.
We believe that supporting women in building scalable, sustainable businesses with education, mentorship, services, and advocacy at all levels of government is the fastest way to close the gap.
It’s time for women to strengthen their role in the business community.
It’s time for women to play big in the national and international economy.
It’s time, because we don’t have 180 years to wait.
Our 2018 Priorities
- We will promote and foster the economic security, power, and equity of Canadian women by advocating for them at all levels of government surrounding existing and new public policy.
- We will support Canadian women in creating scalable and sustainable businesses through the establishment of a Women’s Business Center, where women can access resources and education. We will connect our members to one another through member networking and directories.
- We will create the future of Canadian women’s entrepreneurship through mentorship programs for our membership, to share knowledge and skills through the community, as well as youth programming to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.
