The WCM Executive Coaching Award program provides six months of one on one executive coaching to award winners each year. To date, 50 women have won the Executive Coaching Award and have moved on to great successes in their careers.
In the Canadian capital markets, there is a significant drop in the representation of women at the senior management level. To address this, WCM designed and launched our Executive Coaching Award Program for high-performing women in the capital markets to support and accelerate their career trajectory and build a pipeline of talented female leaders for our industry.
Thanks to the support of our exclusive coaching partner, Felix Global Corp., this WCM program will provide coaching services to qualified senior women (see below for eligibility requirements) working in the capital markets industry. Each Executive Coaching Award provides up to six-months of free individual career coaching valued at $15,000.
One-on-one support from a trained and experienced professional coach has been proven to help women plan their careers and equip themselves to compete for progressively senior roles. The ultimate goal of the WCM Executive Coaching Award Program is to provide an opportunity for experienced professionals to develop executive skills and enhance their likelihood of promotion.
