About 30% Club Canada

 

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.

Our mission is at least 30% representation of ALL women on all boards and C-suites globally.

We support diversity in its very broadest sense and while gender has been our starting point, we fully realize that considerations of ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background and beyond are all part of the journey – and that gender identities are themselves evolving rapidly. We believe that only those organizations that foster truly inclusive cultures – cultures that embrace women who look, act and, importantly, THINK differently – can reach their full potential to positively impact their people, their markets and their communities.

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 and sustainable inclusive leadership. As in all business ventures, ‘what gets measured gets managed’ – a numeric goal provides real impetus for change, and our goal is for a minimum of  30% of board seats and C-Suites to be held by women by 2022.

The 30% Club Canada also collaborates with the Investor Group, a group of asset owners and asset managers committed to exercising their ownership rights to encourage increased representation of women on corporate boards and in executive management positions in Canada.

The 30% Club Canada:

  • *Enlists support from corporations listed on the S&P/TSX
  • *Has no membership fees
  • *Has no quotas
  • *Allows you to signal your commitment as an industry leader to gender balanced leadership

30% Club Canadian Investor Group: Statement of Intent

Read our 30% Club Canadian Investor Group: Statement of Intent, September 7, 2017 .

“Our objective is to achieve a minimum of 30% women on the boards and at the executive management level of S&P/TSX composite index companies by 2022. 30% is the level at which critical mass is achieved and contributions of a minority group cease being representative of that particular group and begin to be judged on their own merit.”
