Women’s Leadership Council: Ambassadors’ Group

Volunteers with diverse backgrounds are collaborating to promote a positive work environment for women.

Our Women’s Leadership Council (WLC) acts as a catalyst for change, promoting a work environment within the accounting profession that provides for the retention, promotion and advancement of women to positions of leadership without bias, unintended or otherwise, based on gender.

The WLC has launched an ambassador program to increase awareness of the Council’s activities and to better assist women in the profession by providing grass roots support and input.

The ambassador program has been active in:

  • identifying topics and speakers for the women’s global leadership summit
  • providing feedback on documents and ideas of the leadership council
  • reaching out to their own networks to disseminate information

We currently have 29 ambassadors of all ages from across Canada, representing:

  • provincial bodies
  • academics
  • government
  • small business
  • professional services firms — both staff and partners
  • oil industry
  • marketing firms
  • employees of multinational conglomerates
This dynamic group is still recruiting for new members — email Karen McCardle, director, Research, Guidance and Support, for more information or to participate!
