Including women in the innovation process has tremendous ability to increase retention rates within a firm. In Canada, approximately 56 percent of women leave the ICT industry mid-career. A recent report stated that women in Toronto’s tech sector may feel less valued than their male counterparts. A workplace culture built on trust and inclusion that supports and empowers women throughout their various career stages is key to sustained inclusive innovation in the workplace. By extension, empowering women in the workplace is vital to realizing the full potential impact of innovation on business success. Great Place to Work® conducted a research study in partnership with UN Women which is based on the responses of over 63,000 employees from 300 organizations in Canada. Explore the research and learn the empirical link between empowerment of women and business performance.
