March 8th was International Women’s Day, but how have women truly progressed in business?
A Grant Thornton International study, Women in business: beyond policy to progress reports that while the number of businesses with at least one woman on their senior leadership team has significantly increased, the proportion of senior roles held by women has marginally declined. As a result, businesses are missing out on the benefits of true diversity—critical at a time when every sector is facing disruption.
Emilio B. Imbriglio, President and CEO stated: “The participation of women and their talent in business is critical and should be an integral part of corporate culture. By working together and on an equal footing, not only will women and men collaborate better, they will also unlock their full potential for individual and collective growth. Society as a whole will come out a winner.”
Enhancing and promoting the role of women
The Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton Women of Talent committee was created in 2012 for the purpose of enhancing the standing of the women in our organization and promoting their roles and responsibilities. We invite you to read seven inspiring portraits of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton women, that was published on March 8th in connection with International Women’s Day.
