On February 25th, 2017 we launched our “Woman of the Day” campaign featuring women that we know through the BCCTC. This campaign profiled a variety of women, from entrepreneurs to those established on the corporate ladder, demonstrating the huge amount that has been achieved by women in Canada so far. Their interviews also provide an insight into the issues they have faced and their opinions on issues that women still face in business in 21st Century Canada. We created an infographic of the survey, more info here. We are excited to be running this campaign again this year, with so many exciting women to feature.
