Empowering for Innovation and Business Success

Canada has embarked on an ambitious agenda to become a global leader in innovation. As Canada builds up the innovation super-clusters; efforts must also build to create inclusive work-spaces that empower women in innovative industries. WE EMPOWER Canada will partner with Great Places to Work to review innovation sectors to identify business and practices that empower women in Canada’s innovation economy.

Empowering Women for Innovation and Business Success, makes a Canadian bench-marked highly compelling, data driven case that organizations with high trust & inclusive workplace cultures are achieving greater and faster rates of success by engaging all of their employees in the innovation process. This research is part of the continued effort to raise awareness about the business case for women’s economic empowerment and the opportunities for the private sector to advance gender equality, particularly in technologically driven fields and innovation sectors where women are underrepresented.
