Unlocking Female Talent in Your Organization: Women in Work Index 2018—Canadian insights

PwC | December 12, 2018

PwC Canada has excerpted from their 2018 Women in Work Index, a summary of the Canadian landscape and what we've learned from global trends in diversity and inclusion.

The report highlights three main elements for success in promoting gender diversity and inclusion:

  • Tying diversity and inclusion to business goals
  • Promoting sponsorship and self advocacy
  • Balancing priorities: life, family, and work 

The summary: progress is continuous but slow. Although Canada ranks relatively high in labour force participation in comparison to other Organisation for Economic Co-operative Development (OECD) countries, Canada's position is stalling. Our wage gap is also averaged $0.87 for every man's one dollar, which is larger than the OECD average.
