By Invitation Only

The Corporate Board Summit will initiate a high-level discussion about HOW to elicit further action by Canadian companies to diversify their boards. Presenters will discuss the practical and concrete actions that have worked to diversify boards, and our invited guests, CEOs, board leaders, regulatory officials, and board diversity advocates will have time to ask questions and discuss what more needs to be done to prompt action by companies. The Summit builds on Catalyst’s recent report, Gender Diversity on Boards in Canada: Recommendations for Accelerating Progress, commissioned by the Government of Ontario, and on the influx of membership to 30% Club Canada, with the aim of increasing momentum leading us to success.
