World of Choices – Empowering Young Women
Achieving success in a global economy depends on our collective ability to equip young people with the skills they need to prepare them for the jobs of the future. Although, 93% of Canadians agree that girls and boys should have equal rights and privileges, in reality: 2 out of 3 of minimum wage workers are women, and only 4% of CEO’s in Canada’s top 500 companies are women. World of Choices, Empowering Young Women will provide 240 high school girls with an opportunity to hear from women who have achieved success in a variety of sectors. This event will inspire young women and help them to understand the limitless opportunities available to them as they pursue their educational and career goals.
