2018 Agents of Change: Champions Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion

Mount Royal University, Calgary, AB

This event will bring together men and women working in the electricity industry who share a common commitment to creating equitable and inclusive workplaces. View our agenda for the current speaker and session lineup.

Dates: 07 November 2018 To 07 November 2018

We know that the number of women working in the Canadian electricity sector is still far below where it needs to be. If we’re going to see real change, and quickly, both men and women need to stand up and get behind the cause to champion this change.

Bring your team to this  informative one day event where we will explore how women and men can reach across the aisle and serve as allies to one another to address the challenges they face in the workplace, and expedite the process of bridging the gender gap. Designed to encourage interaction and collaboration, the event creates a setting for employees and leaders at all levels to reflect on their experiences and draw inspiration for the journey ahead.

This event is one of our many efforts to move the agenda forward in creating and sustaining a level of diversity that will drive innovation, equitable income and positive impact for Canada.

Supported by both our industry and the Alberta Ministry for the Status of Women, the day will consist of a robust line-up of inspirational speakers, as well as participants from the electricity and renewable energy industry who are committed to sharing their experiences and strategies in creating an inclusive workplace.

Influential male champions will speak to personal/work experiences and what has led them to challenge the status quo. Hear from women in the workplace who will share their perspectives on career challenges and opportunities. Learn from companies who are implementing measurable actions to transform their organisations, and the compelling business case for doing so.
