International Women’s Day

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, Katie Squires-Thompson, President of Women in Capital Markets (WCM), shared a special presentation on The Equity Equation and how we can contribute to the acceleration of equity, diversity, and inclusion in the Canadian finance industry. The presentation included key data on how different demographics feel about the industry and their employers, which shed light on important themes surrounding equity and inclusion for women, and particularly women of colour. After the presentation, we had an open discussion and Q&A period about the reality of gender-equity in Capital Markets and the actions we can take for a more equitable industry.

Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC) A representative from Canada’s LGBT+ Chamber of Commerce (GLCC) hosted a presentation about how to improve our support toward the LGBTQ+ community. The CGLCC is an organization designed to elevate LGBT businesses and foster greater diversity and inclusion across Canada’s economy, as well as serving businesses looking to form more inclusive cultures or programming. The representative shared his own experiences as an out professional and provided insight on how we can all be thoughtful allies.
