Happy International Women’s Day!
Electro-Federation Canada’s Women’s Network is proud take part and recognize the many members who celebrated IWD2021 on March 8th. This year’s theme focused on challenging gender bias and inequality.
“A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.” (https://www.internationalwomensday.com/Theme )
EFC has implemented a three-tier strategy to address diversity within the membership, which includes Executive Communication, Incorporating Diversity into the HR Network and Female Empowerment through the Women’s Network which has succeeded its one year milestone in January.
The Electrical industry is an innovative market that thrives on new technologies, superior services and a talented workforce that helps power Canada’s changing world. This workforce is empowered by a strong network of people that we lean on and learn from. EFC is dedicated to supporting the electrical industry’s journey in becoming a career destination for people of all diverse backgrounds—building a solid foundation for diversity and inclusion for a broader workforce.
Today, EFC member companies employ over 42,000 workers from coast-to-coast in Canada. Approximately 24% of this total workforce is represented by women. The average percentage of women in the workforce in Canada is 44%. To help address this gender gap, EFC has placed a strategic focus on diversity and inclusion.
Thank you to the many individual members and member organizations who raised their hands to challenge gender bias and inequality. You are making the difference!
