Electricity Human Resources Canada is delighted to have announced its new partnership with Women Leadership Nation™ (WLN) on International Women’s Day. This strategic alliance will offer EHRC members and Leadership Accord signatories with training, development and strategy support in their efforts to make progress in closing the Gender Gap.
Changing the gender landscape is not easy: it takes tactical and continued efforts to affect systemic change. EHRC’s vision in partnering with WLN is that those organizations who need support will be equipped with the knowledge and resources required to identify and overcome barriers that might slow the organization’s progress. WLN are experts at delivering holistic training, measurement, and tailored support solutions to help employers become not just more diverse, but more agile and competitive. EHRC members and Accord signatories will benefit from preferred pricing and access to valuable resources, created to help them succeed in achieving parity.
“Electricity Human Resources Canada is so pleased to partner with Women Leadership Nation to offer signatories of the Leadership Accord an opportunity to gain access to in-depth tools and training focused on supporting and sustaining diversity efforts. We know that integrating women into workplaces requires more than just opening the door to female employees … and that amending deeply embedded organizational practises and barriers that prevent your organization from closing the gender gap is not easy, especially if you cannot identify them. Our partnership with WLN will help signatories foster a deeper organizational awareness and understanding that will drive measurable change.”
Michelle Branigan, CEO, Electricity Human Resources Canada
“Organizations today are largely focused on solving individual pain points associated with the lack of diversity & inclusion. Very few are looking at the bigger picture. We are deeply committed to helping create unified workplaces”
Jennifer Ladouceur, President and Co-Founder, Women Leadership Nation
