B.C.’s economy needs more women leaders — in business, on boards and in growing industries

Help grow the economic impact and outcomes for women in BC

The “Women as a Catalyst for Growth: A B.C. Action Plan” outlines practical recommendations for government, business and individuals to shape policy and ultimately create change.In order to increase the economic growth and impact of women in B.C. and Canada, the key recommendations in this action plan include:

  1. Promote and advocate diversity
  2. Champion women
  3. Foster positive & self affirming mindsets
  4. Incorporate a diversity focus in early education
  5. Activate men
