The statistics
are grim

As of July 2019, only 3.5% of TSX-listed Canadian companies were led by a woman CEO

Despite having a larger share of tertiary degrees, highly-educated Canadian women earned only 73% of their male counterparts’ earnings in 2016.

50% to 69% of Black, East Asian, and South Asian professionals who are highly on guard against bias have a high intent to quit.

At every step up the corporate ladder, women of colour lose ground to White women and men of colour. Statistics show the numbers going from 7% in VP roles to 4% in C-Suite

Gender Wage Gap for ‘women of colour’ $0.67 for every $1.00 earned by White Men

Women of color continue to lose ground at every step in the pipeline—between the entry level and the C-suite, the representation of women of color drops off by more than 75 percent. - McKinsey 2021

Women of color account for only 4 percent of C-suite leaders, a number that hasn’t moved significantly in the past three years. - McKinsey 2021
