IN THIS ISSUE May 2017

Women in Power

Organizations are improving their HR policies to ensure they represent the needs of a diverse workforce, including women. Companies with more female directors over time significantly outperform those with fewer representation: 84 per cent return on sales, 60 per cent return on invested capital and 46 per cent return on equity. The May issue of Alberta Venture takes a comprehensive look at the importance of women in positions of power in senior executive and governance roles.

Position your company as a leader that supports gender diversity and advertise to a powerful business audience.
