Join the Movement
Teams with an equal gender mix perform better in terms of sales, profits and earnings per share.1
Gender parity is not just a movement… from closing labour gaps and talent shortages to maximizing profits, diversity and inclusion just makes sense. That is why Build a Dream works closely with industry and education to empower female students to pursue careers in fields where women are currently underrepresented.
Since 2014, the non-profit has engaged 10,000 parents and their daughters through specialized programming and will double that number in the 2019-2020 school year. Are you ready to go nationwide with us?
- REACH. Build a Dream receives an overwhelming number of requests for speaking engagements and event hosting. By 2021, we will take our message to Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia.
- RECRUITMENT. Having troubles filling positions? Many of our programs put you face-to-face with your future workforce so you can and help funnel skilled candidates into your talent pipeline.
- EXPOSURE. Recruiting talent is a top priority for many companies. Use Build a Dream programs to leverage what you are already doing to create a diverse and inclusive environment.
“Of the many benefits of this sponsorship, we particularly value our opportunities to: connect with families in the communities we serve, showcase our brand to future talent, and align Next Dimension with companies that share the same core values.”
Brandy Coulsey, Marketing & Vendor Relations Manager, Next Dimension Inc.
“The event you and your team held was FANTASTIC!! I have never seen so many parents and daughters interested in careers. I have been to numerous ‘exposure’ events for young people, and by far the Build a Dream events have been the most unique I have seen. Congratulations to you and your team for working on something special.”
Colleen Dignam, Provincial Training Coordinator, The Carpenters’ Union
