OTTAWA and WASHINGTON, D.C.; Oct. 29, 2018 – The Canada-U.S. Council for Advancement of Women Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders (the Council) released today its fifth and final pillar report, "Advancing Women as Leaders in the Private Sector.” The report finds that despite a commitment to advancing women, many companies across Canada and the U.S. are lacking clear goals, the ability to measure progress or accountable leaders to drive progress.
