Final Report from the Canada-U.S. Council for Advancement of Women Identifies Clear Opportunity to Accelerate the Advancement of Women by Closing the Gap Between Commitment and Action

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. There is a real opportunity to accelerate the advancement of women by closing the gap between commitment and action. The good news is that significant research exists to guide companies in creating action plans that can accelerate the slow progress that has been made to date. The final pillar report was led by Tina Lee, Chief Executive Officer, T&T Supermarkets, and Julie Sweet, Chief Executive Officer – North America, Accenture.
