Women in Senior Leadership Positions: a Profile of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) 2012
October 4, 2012
Leadership is vital to Canada’s social and economic prosperity. We need the best leaders to address the pressing challenges of global competitiveness, economic and social development. Diversity in leadership helps organizations attract top talent, meet the needs of diverse markets and communities, promote innovation, improve employee satisfaction and performance and reduce risks. It also shapes the aspirations of young people.
This report is the first of its kind to profile and provide insight on where, how and why women in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) are advancing to senior leadership positions.
Specifically, this project:
• Measures the representation of women, including visible minorities, in leadership positions in seven sectors: elected, public, corporate, voluntary, education, agencies, boards & commissions, and the legal sector;
• Examines similarities and differences between and within sectors; and
• Suggests best practices to help women advance to senior leadership positions.
