Canada

TSX Composite Index - 20.6%

Recognizing Canada’s distinct corporate governance framework, the aim of the 30% Club Canada is to include both board Chairs and CEOs to achieve better gender balance at board level, as well at senior management levels. In order to achieve this, we are working closely with Catalyst and their important Catalyst Accord initiative. We do not believe mandatory quotas are the right approach. Instead, we are building a strong foundation of business leaders who are committed to meaningful, sustainable gender balance in business leadership. Our name comes from an aspirational goal that we believe can be achieved in Canada through focused efforts by the business community. As in all business ventures, ‘what gets measured gets managed’ – a numeric goal provides real impetus for change, and our goal is for 30% of board seats and C-Suites to be held by women by 2022.

    Many men are unfamiliar with how gender gaps in opportunity, pay, and advancement hurt them, too, both as leaders of companies and as members of families and communities.Organizations must enlist these men, in partnership with women, to work together as allies in changing the organizational norms and structures that perpetuate gender gaps.

    This event is especially targeted to male senior executives, Chief Human Resources Officers, and Chief Diversity Officerswho are seeking strategies for leveraging all talent in the workplace and advice about the most effective ways for women and men to partner together in ending gender inequalities at work.

    ​Read 30% club Canada report on creating stronger businesses and a stronger Canada through better gender balance. French version click here

    Report Abstract:

    Research studies show a positive relationship between stronger business performance, economic growth and the representation of women on boardsand in C-suites. For the past 25 years, women have made up the majority of university graduates across each province in Canada, however the proportion of women in corporate leadership roles does not reflect this. While the proportion of women directors in Canada has increased over time, it is essential that Canadian business leaders strategically plan to grow this momentum to ensure sustainability of gender balance. Human capital is a critical driver of growth in the economy and women are a sign cant source of untapped talent. Research shows that women aspire to be business leaders just as much as men, and despite these aspirations, educated, qualified women decide to opt out of certain organizations and industries. To create stronger businesses and a stronger Canada, it’s imperative for business leaders to create and sustain a work culture that encourages women to opt-in and stay-in. This white paper covers the following topics: gender balanced leadership creates stronger businesses and a stronger Canada, opportunities for gender balance in the Canadian market and globally, why women opt out of certain companies and industries and what companies can do to create better gender balance. Public policy and societal norms are not a focus of this paper.

    Boyden’s Jessa Chupik and Joanna Conclaves sat down with Maureen Jensen, Ontario Securities Commission Chair & CEO, to talk leadership and the power of diversity. Click here to view the article.
