The Canadian Gender & Good Governance Alliance Releases the CEO Blueprint

WCM| October 15, 2018

The Canadian Gender and Good Governance Alliance (the Alliance) announces the release of the CEO Blueprint, which equips Canada’s CEOs with an action-oriented guide to building and leading gender balanced organizations. As a joint initiative by Alliance members - the 30% Club Canada, the Business Council of Canada, Canadian Coalition for Good Governance (CCGG), Catalyst Canada, theClarkson Centre (CCBE), Governance Professionals of Canada (GPC), the Institute of Corporate Directors (ICD) and Women in Capital Markets - the CEO Blueprint delivers on the Alliance’s objective of amplifying and coordinating efforts to build gender diverse organizations.

Designed to help frame a CEO’s agenda on gender diversity, the CEO Blueprint outlines three key steps and provides tactics throughout, for:

• Building your vision

• Making it mission critical

• Focusing on high impact practices

This is the second strategy-focused tool delivered by the Alliance since its inception last November. The Directors’ Playbook, the Alliance’s inaugural joint initiative, continues to serve as a curation of practical tools that companies can use to achieve gender balance on their boards through deliberate action. The Alliance invites businesses, regulators, institutional investors and other interested stakeholders who require support in advancing gender diversity to use the Alliance as a resource.
