Today marks International Women's Day, twenty-four hours to celebrate the political, social, economic and cultural achievements of women. However, in corporate Canada we remain frustratingly far from reaching gender parity. In fact, at our current pace, we remain some 200 years from achieving parity. The risks of this reality are simply too great to be accepted.
This International Women's Day let us commit to a new approach, one that will leave gender parity as a legacy to the next generation. This is something powerful to celebrate as we #pressforprogress.
