BC-economic-forum-women-catalyst-growth-2015-Vancouver-BC-Canada-1

 Event Description

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

The inaugural forum in October 2014 highlighted opportunities here in B.C. to support women in business and to advance the conversation into action strategies for economic growth. Most importantly, it resulted in feedback to create “Women as a Catalyst for Growth: A B.C. Action Plan” which 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:

  • Promote and advocate diversity
  • Champion women
  • Foster positive & self affirming mindsets
  • Incorporate a diversity focus in early education
  • Activate men
  • To ensure the successful implementation of this action plan, we need organizations and individuals to take action now. These combined actions will propel us towards sustained social and cultural changes. The result will be greater economic growth through the promotion of gender diversity in leadership and throughout our workforce in B.C. and in Canada. The time for action is now!
