MORE ABOUT WCM TORONTO
Since 1995, WCM has been building a vibrant community of professionals and delivering initiatives to accelerate gender diversity across the financial industry and corporate boardrooms of Canada. Today, 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 Toronto 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 and networking opportunities provide a platform for women to build strong professional networks, and our executive coaching programs and 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.
Joining WCM is a vote for diversity, inclusion, equality and change.
