WCM AwardsApplications open September 23rd, 2019
Be recognized as a senior leader. Set an example. Share your successes.
WCM’s Awards recognize the exemplary leadership and contributions of individuals and firms in the Canadian capital markets, who share an inspiring vision for the future: a future of equality. Equal wages, equal opportunity, equal treatment, and respect for both men and women. This is a future that can harness the full potential of our talent pool - a future of better ideas, stronger teams, improved businesses and new levels of prosperity.
WCM’s Award recipients are working hard to accelerate the progress of gender diversity in the Canadian capital markets. They are making committed efforts to advance women, to close the gaps, to break down barriers of advancement, and to create a culture of diversity and inclusion in which everyone can thrive. They are revolutionizing their institutions to build the foundation for a better future. They are blazing a path forward with innovation, creativity, and courage.
These individuals are leading by example because they know that succeeding in WCM’s mission, and effectively driving positive change in our industry, requires a concerted effort from everyone. They have and continue to inspire to work towards making gender inequality a thing of the past.
