Equity in Corporate Governance - The Agenda
TFI President & CEO joined Tanya van Biesen, Executive Director, Catalyst Canada, and Paulette Senior, President & CEO, The Canadian Women's Foundation, on The Agenda with Steve Paikin to discuss the progression of women in leadership roles within corporate Canada and the efforts to boost equity and diversity at the C-suite level.
Today women represent just 4% of CEOs and 17% of executive teams of Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) listed companies. Despite attempts by regulators and governments to put pressure on companies to make progress on gender diversity in corporate leadership, the numbers in the C-suite remain low.
"Better gender diversity in your boardroom and your executive team results in better financial returns, better governance and better risk management", said Ms Reynolds. "The numbers are out there, the business case has been proven at this point."
