Promoting Equity & Safety in the Workplace

228 years away?

Gender equity and safety in the workplace today.

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate women’s achievements, while calling for the work that still needs to be done. With 1 in 4 women thinking about putting a break on their career progression or leaving the workforce, the COVID-19 pandemic is unravelling decades of progress made. It is estimated that it will take 228 years for Canada to close the gender gap.

This year, to mark International Women’s Day, WomanACT invites you to make a bold commitment to advancing gender equity in the workplace. Contact us to host a Promoting Equity & Safety in the Workplace workshop for your team.
