It’s International Women’s Day this Friday, March 8, a day to come together for important conversations around women’s equality, inclusion and leadership. This dialogue is often framed by the barriers women face in the workplace and communities due to disproportionate family obligations, low representation in certain fields, gender discrimination or simply the devaluing of women and the skills they bring to the table. BIPOC and newcomer women face even more challenges.This week, in advance of #IWD and our own Women’s Leadership Forum, DIVERSEcity will be sharing messages from women leaders that raise questions, present ideas to advance women’s equity and — reflecting the 2024 #IWD theme — #InspireInclusion. Kicking off our week-long campaign is Lenya Wilks, Director, Partnerships & Stakeholder Engagement at DIVERSEcity, who leads a high-performing and innovative team made up mostly of women who are making a difference in our community for newcomers, refugees and migrant workers.Jamaican-born Lenya, who has a reputation for being a relationship-builder, community connector and problem solver, shares this message: “To inspire inclusion, we need to practise allyship and solidarity actively. This involves bravely standing up against discrimination, supporting marginalized women, and advocating for inclusive policies and practices. By doing so, we can pave the way for a fairer future and uplift each other with conviction.” Learn more about Lenya here: www.dcrs.ca/leadership-team/lenya-wilks/ #InternationalWomensDay #IWD2024 #womenleaders ...
