Status of Women Luncheon

Hard to believe that in 2020 we are still talking about the gender wage gap, but equal pay for equal work is a real issue that impacts us all. In fact, research shows that when equal pay is given for equal work, our economy grows stronger, families prosper and communities thrive.

Jenny Gulamani-Abdulla, BPW Canada President and one of Canada’s Most Powerful Women by the Women‘s Executive Network in Canada, and Katherine Wentzell, Chair, Gender Wage Gap with BPW Canadwill and RBC Financial Planner, share why pay equity is so important, how BPW has been involved and the impact this has on all of our lives. Come prepared to get involved in the discussion and to share real-life experiences with your fellow BPW ladies!

We will also continue to collect donations for Suit Yourself, a not for profit that helps women in need who are entering or re-entering the workforce by providing them with clothing, accessories, and toiletries.  As a group, BPW is gathering toiletry items (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrushes, etc.) and donation boxes will present at the February event.
