Our mission to inspire, empower and educate young girls about non-traditional career paths, our fight for gender equality in the workplace, and our work towards creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, has extended beyond Canadian borders.

It is because of our Corporate Sponsors, that we can work towards a more equitable and diverse workforce for all, creating a world where we all win.
