Canadian Coalition to Empower Women

Who We Are

The Canadian Coalition to Empower Women spearheaded by BPW Canada exists to advance gender equality and the economic empowerment of women in all their rich diversity and genders; by reimagining how an inclusive intersectional approach and collaborative partnerships can sustain strong economies, build accessible and equitable societies to improve the quality of life for all Canadians and their families in communities across Canada. 

Our Goal

Grounded in the fundamental values of inclusion, diversity, equity and access and supporting local grassroots change makers to leverage a number of emerging National initiatives such as the IDEAS4GenderEquality and the 50-30 Challenge and the universal guidance of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) and online platform, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and Generation Equality Action Coalitions (GEF): We commit to;

Connect & Build Partnerships with businesses of all sizes, government at all levels, and all other stakeholders including civil society, non-profit, community service, business, and labour organizations.

Engage & Empower stakeholder groups to explore the benefits of gender equality in all its diversity and challenge persisting myths and biases to promote a fresh dialogue recognizing that it will take all of us from every stakeholder group to make gender equality a reality in Canada.

Reimagine how innovative thinking, collaborative best practice sharing, and bold action can create tangible solutions and workplace policies and practices for impactful representation, opportunity, and value outcomes for all.
