Elevate and Celebrate: Women in Governance (WiG) 2024 Annual Recognition Gala in Montreal

Embark on an unforgettable evening as we roll out the red carpet for the 12th edition of WiG’s Recognition Gala. This isn’t just a Gala; it’s a statement—a testament to the power of concrete actions to move the needle regarding gender parity in the workplace.

Presented by AtkinsRéalis and held under the honorary co-presidency of Deborah K. Orida, President and Chief Executive Officer of PSP Investments, and Denis Ricard, President and Chief Executive Officer of iA Financial Group, this event promises to be a memorable convergence of leadership and inspiration. Chan Tep, DE&I Advisor at CBC/Radio-Canada, will be our emcee.

This prestigious evening will bring together Canada’s top executive leaders to shine the spotlight on the close to 100 renowned organizations that achieved the Bronze to Platinum levels of WiG’s Parity Certification™, along with our evaluation partners Accenture, Mercer, and WTW. Together we will celebrate their outstanding commitment to gender equity, diversity, and inclusion.

Join us for this luminous gathering: your support is the beacon that guides us forward. We are looking forward to seeing you to pay tribute to the certified organizations’ leaders who are redefining a more inclusive corporate landscape.

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 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, 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, nearly 1,000,000 employees across Canada and the United States work for an organization that holds WiG’s Parity Certification™. Visit our Parity Certification™ microsite to learn more!
