Our Work

We currently have three active projects that our staff & volunteers are working on. You can visit our Past Work to explore previous projects and initiatives. Below is a list of our ongoing projects

Think Women

The goal of Think Women: Peer Network for a Feminist Economy is to address systemic barriers by advancing inclusive policies and practices, encouraging more equitable and effective sharing of resources, increasing networks and collaboration to accelerate systemic change, and supporting the positive distribution of authority, voices, and decision-making power to support women’s equality.

Accelerating Inclusion: Achieving 50-30 in the Co-operative Sector

As of September 28th 2022, more than 1700 organizations, including WEC, have signed on to the government’s 50:30 Challenge. It’s a high priority for many organizations because studies show, unequivocally, that diverse organizations thrive over the long-term. Including more women, and more diverse women, in leadership and senior management will dramatically increase an organization’s access to skilled talent, dynamic markets, creativity, innovation, and improved organizational performance.

Her Mentors

Mentorship is an affordable and accessible tool that can build skills, advance career goals, improve community connections and increase self-esteem. Racialized newcomer women can gain more access to employment and self-employment opportunities through the successful implementation of inclusive mentorship.
