Events

As part of a longitudinal study following men and women MBA graduates from around the world, Catalyst research has found that men benefit more from adopting proactive strategies than women, and when women did all the things they have been told will help them get ahead—using the same tactics as men—they still advanced less than their male counterparts and had slower pay growth. These findings are consistent in Canada with a few notable differences.

Join Vandana Juneja, Regional Director, Central Canada, Catalyst for an intimate Roundtable discussion on understanding and busting the persistent myths about the gender gap. You will hear about Catalyst research and tools, and will have an opportunity to learn about the practices of other Catalyst member companies.

This event is complimentary to Catalyst Members and is designed for leaders of Employee Resource Groups (ERG), Women's Networks, Diversity & Inclusion practitioners and other employees from member organizations in the Mississauga/GTA area.

Space is limited – early registration is highly recommended. Catalyst member organizations may send 1-2 attendees per company. Please direct any questions to Joanna Harper at [email protected].

Here's the sort of thing I don't believe you're willing to factor in, to the detriment of all women:


“In 2011, 22% of male physicians and 44% of female physicians worked less than full time, up from 7% of men and 29% of women from Cejka’s 2005 survey.” ama-assn.org/amednews/2012/03/26/bil10326.htm (See also "Female Docs See Fewer Patients, Earn $55,000 Less Than Men" http://finance.yahoo.com/news/female-docs-see-fewer-patients-172100718.html)


"...[O]nly 35 percent of women who have earned MBAs after getting a bachelor’s degree from a top school are working full time." It "is not surprising that women are not showing up more often in corporations’ top ranks." http://malemattersusa.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/why-women-are-leaving-the...


A thousand laws won't close those gaps.
