“While leaders want more women in the higher ranks and are committed to the cause, they are not approaching the problem the way they would any other business priority.”
“We see a major disconnect between commitment and action. The time to act is now, and the benefits will only increase. The need for continuous innovation is growing as companies across industries are disrupted by new technology, and diversity will help them succeed.”
The time to act is now.
- It is up to us to self-organize and ensure our advancement is a priority.
- We must know what it is we want – both individually and collectively.
- We must have clear targets, a path and a plan to get there.
- We must clearly and concisely communicate to those who need to hear us and ask for what we need.
- It is time to coordinate and communicate our action for its highest impact.
The importance of convening powerful women for a specific purpose has never been greater.
WE are the leaders we have been waiting for.
WOMEN BUILT2SCALE is a curated collection of events, workshops and targeted conversations over three consecutive days designed to convene a diverse cross-section of powHERful Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders to explore what needs to be done differently, to engage in disruptive dialogue, and discuss the process of HOW we are going to create sustainable, systemic change in the progression of women's leadership in Canada by 2025.
Women-focused not women-only.
An opportunity for primarily female leaders from across Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Manitoba and decision-makers from corporate, business, government, entrepreneurship, social impact and community development to gather at EVRAZ Place in Regina on September 25-27 to participate in a proactive framework, ultimately verbalizing the recommendations that we’d like to incorporate into a leadership mobilization plan for collective buy-in, support, and take action.
The series can be attended as an all-inclusive package or per event to best meet the needs and priorities of our participants. Keynote presentations are dedicated to collective progression. Breakouts and networking are dedicated to individual progression. Virtual registration and participation via live telecasting will be available. Preliminary details are below.
