It Starts with One: Be Her Champion

Organized by: Status of Women Canada
Date: On-Going
Registration: Take the pledge here

Event Description:

On April 16, 2015, the Honourable Dr. K. Kellie Leitch, Minister of Labour and Minister of Status of Women, launched the It Starts with One – Be Her Champion campaign. The campaign urges leaders in all fields to make the commitment to champion a woman.

The It Starts with One campaign is designed to engage leaders in both the private and public sectors as champions for women by taking a pledge to participate in formal or informal mentoring efforts. Canadians can make their It Starts with One pledge at women.gc.ca/startswithone. The website also provides information on the benefits of championing, links to formal mentorship programs in Canada, and a toolkit for initiating championing relationships.

  • The Government of Canada is urging leaders in all fields to take the pledge to make a difference in a woman's career or business by being her champion.
  • There are enormous benefits for women who are mentored, including accelerated career development and improved business survival rates.
    Championing takes mentorship a step further. In addition to providing advice and support, champions stand up for their mentees, promote them in their networks and expose them to new opportunities.
  • By pledging to Be her Champion you are joining a growing movement to help women reach the highest levels of achievement. Their success is good for women, good for the economy and good for Canada.
  • Once you have taken the It Starts with One pledge, you can keep the momentum going by challenging your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.
