SYNOPSISThe World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings tell us that gender parity is over 200 years away. There has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress! While we know that gender parity won’t happen overnight, the good news is that across the world women are making positive gains day by day. It’s time to celebrate the very strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support. Let’s hear from those who are driving the change through, for instance, investor activism and the launch of the Canadian Gender and Good Governance Alliance (CGGGA) Directors’ Playbook. #PressforProgress

HOSTED BY: 30% Club Canada, Catalyst Canada, and The Canadian Gender and Good Governance Alliance
