2018 Annual Recognition Gala — Montreal

Past Event

Women in Governance’s Annual Recognition Gala took place on Tuesday, September 11, 2018, from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm, at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal. The event was held under the honorary presidency of Ms. Paula Keays, President of McKesson Canada and Mr. Robert Dumas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Life Financial, Quebec.

During this prestigious evening, Parity Certified companies were honored for their outstanding actions in favor of gender equality.

This Gala brought together leaders from the corporate and political world, men and women, working together for the achievement of gender parity.

This innovative standard not only assesses parity at the decision-making level but also evaluates the organization’s commitment to the implementation of mechanisms that enable women at all levels of hierarchy to achieve career advancement, thus creating a pipeline of female talent. In order to obtain their accreditation, organizations must adequately structure their procedures and meet the various selection criteria.
