RESOURCES AND TOOLS FROM LEADERS IN DIVERSITY

WE FOR SHE has compiled some key tools from the international gender diversity movement and examples of diversity programs to help BC move forward on gender parity.

These organizations are leading the way for gender diversity and inclusion, and sharing their experiences along the way. They offer resources you can learn from and tools you can use in your own life and organization.

Resources TO HELP YOU TAKE ACTION

Below you can browse helpful resources, research and tools for you to:

  • Take action in your life. We each have the power to create change. As individuals, women can educate themselves, improve their mindset and step up as leaders. As a culture, we need to challenge the status quo and normalize equality in leadership roles, in pay and at home.
  • Take action in your organization. Businesses of any size can lead the way for inclusion. Your corporate culture, HR practices, procurement policies and even your marketing can be used to show your commitment to gender diversity and pave the way for change.
