The social media campaign will begin on 8 March 2020 (International Women’s Day) and continue until September 2020.
Global Compact Network Canada (GCNC), the Canadian network of the UN Global Compact (UNGC), is dedicated to assisting Canadian organizations with the advancement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the 10 Principles of the UNGC. Launched in 2013, GCNC offers Canadian businesses and non-business associations a unique opportunity to learn and exchange best practices in corporate sustainability, both within the Canadian Network and among global peers.
GCNC received funding from the Department for Women and Gender Equality for a three-year project, starting in 2017 and formally launched in 2018, to engage the private sector as a responsible accelerator to eliminate barriers faced by women in the workplace. The project is entitled Gender Equality Leadership in the Canadian Private Sector and it focuses on engaging 20+ corporate and advisory partners to develop, test, and implement a set of tools to help advance gender equality in the workplace. The main deliverable is The Blueprint for Gender Equality Leadership in the Canadian Private Sector supported by the Maturity Model, a self-assessment questionnaire, and the Resources, collected third-party resources.
