Tactical Tips for Advancing Gender Representation in Board Leadership

Thursday, March 10 | noon - 1:00pm

In an effort to increase much-needed gender equality on boards, YWCA Edmonton and DirectHer Network have teamed up on a unique 12-month pilot project aimed at blazing more pathways for women and gender diverse people wanting to serve at decision-making tables.

In this conversation, we will be joined by Chantel Cabaj, Founder and Executive Director of DirectHer Network, Cody Slater, CEO of Blackline Safety and Annie Korver, Principal of Rise Consulting to talk about tactical ways organizations can advance meaningful gender representation, particularly among racialized and Indigenous women. This conversation is for anyone wanting to change the face of boards in our country.

Your generous support allows us to continue our important work of creating a community with equity, opportunity, and choice for all.
