Sommet Femmes et leadership 2018

Autour du globe, il devient manifeste que l’avancement des femmes constitue un facteur prépondérant pour faire progresser la société, améliorer la santé des populations mondiales et accroître la richesse économique des nations. Cependant, les femmes se heurtent souvent à des obstacles structurels lorsqu’il s’agit de faire avancer leur carrière et de gravir les échelons supérieurs menant au succès professionnel. Si on constate des progrès dans ce domaine dans certains pays, en revanche les statistiques sur la parité des sexes montrent qu’il en va autrement au Canada.
