About our Parity Certification

The alarming statistics on the number of women in senior management positions or on Boards are what motivated the founding of Women in Governance (WiG) in 2010. The mission of our non-profit organization is to support women in their career advancement and leadership development; with our Parity Certification, we also support organizations working to close the gender gap in the workplace while accounting for the multiple impacts of diversity in women’s career advancement. Created in 2017 with the pro bono support of McKinsey & Company, this valuable tool helps organizations assess what their current status is as it relates to gender equity, diversity, and inclusion. With the support of Accenture, Mercer, and WTW, WiG provides a comprehensive analysis of strengths and opportunities to close the gender gap and become a more inclusive workplace, giving particular attention to intersectionality. So far, 700,000 employees across Canada and the United States work for an organization that holds Women in Governance Parity Certification, and the program is now about to expand over the Atlantic.
