Mentor Lunch & Learn with Linda Boulanger: Managing a Successful ...Wednesday, March 20th 2019
12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
In Montreal, women remain a minority in the boardrooms, “C-suites” and capital markets in general. Everyone would benefit from greater diversity, from including employers and clients. The WCM Montreal chapter provides a female-oriented network to advocate for women in the financial industry.
The Montreal chapter of WCM has three main goals: First, encourage young women to pursue a career in finance and STEM by promoting its benefits to high school, college and university students. Second, support women in all stages of their careers with mentoring and events tailored to their specific needs. And finally, involve both men and women in promoting women in our industry. We hope to meet you at our upcoming events in Montreal and we encourage you to volunteer with our chapter.

MORE ABOUT WCM MONTREAL
Founded in 2016, WCM Montreal's initiatives support WCM's national mission to accelerate gender diversity across the financial industry and corporate boardrooms of Canada. In Montreal, we offer professional development events and programs for women at all career levels and work with local firms to increase awareness of WCM and ensure gender diversity for our future generation.
Our popular Mentor Lunches are roundtable opportunities to get up close and personal with an esteemed senior leader in our industry and to learn from her experiences. Our Mentorship Program pairs female protégées with a mentor either in Montreal or elsewhere in Canada for a one-year period to provide support and guidance, help to establish career goals and discuss strategies to overcome challenges. Our various social events provide a platform for women to build strong professional networks and to solidify our community here in Montreal, and our topic-specific skill-building events, such as our Careers in Motion series, equip women with the skills they need to excel in their careers.
We also focus on building the pipeline of female talent for our industry. Our annual SheBiz event for female high school students, and our UniConnect event series for female university students serve to educate these young women about the rewarding career opportunities in business and finance and dispel stereotypes about these career paths.
Succeeding in our mission and effectively driving positive change in our industry requires a concerted effort from us all - firms, government, male and female professionals included. There is great strength in numbers - progress lies in the collective actions of individuals. We invite you to get involved and join our movement to leave gender parity as a legacy to the next generation. Together, we can make gender inequality history.
