The initiative will also educate a number of Canada’s corporate leaders in the private sector, as well as federal agencies, boards, commissions and crown corporations (ABCC) about the business case for diversity at the board level. The project will also provide mentoring of 5 to 15 women newly appointed to a board, to ensure that they succeed in their first year of board service.
