There is a global shift taking place in boardrooms across the world as more and more companies prioritize diversity and gender representation on their boards. In Canada, the federal and provincial governments and nine provincial regulators are working towards accelerating the pace of change. More and more business leaders and organizations are supporting efforts to do the same.
On November 13th, Catalyst held an informative and engaging panel discussion at the TSX which focused on the new Ontario Securities Commission comply or explain regulations regarding boards and executive committees. Kathleen P. Taylor, Chair of the Board, RBC, moderated a discussion with Trent Henry, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, EY Canada, Robert S. Prichard, Chairman of the Board, BMO Financial Group, and David Leith, Chairman of the Board, MTS Allstream to share steps that leaders can take to diversify their boards, executive committees and talent pipeline and to accelerate change across corporate Canada. The panel was followed by an in-depth working session with General Counsels and VPs of Human Resources to better understand how the regulations will impact their organizations.
