Poll

The EU is currently negotiating a proposal that would require publicly listed companies to appoint women to 40 per cent of non-executive director and a third of all executive director Board positions by 2021. What do you think of this proposal?

Disagree - women should be appointed based on merit
Agree - It's the only way we're going to see real change
Unsure - I'm concerned those women who are appointed will be considered "quota fillers"

What Can WCM Do for You?

"The 2014 WCM Emerging Leaders Coaching Award has been extremely rewarding. Not only has it enhanced my leadership and management skills, but it also demanded more intentional thought on how best to leverage my key competencies and bridge the gaps. I was able to focus on how to best elevate the value that I can bring to my organization, continue to cultivate new development opportunities and reach some important milestones in my career."

- Sophia Soofi, Executive Director, CIBC & 2014 Emerging Leaders Recipient
