In an effort to increase much-needed gender equality on boards, YWCA Edmonton and DirectHer Network have teamed up on a unique 12-month pilot project aimed at blazing more pathways for women and gender minorities wanting to serve at decision-making tables. “This partnership is a made-in-Alberta solution to the real challenge of not seeing enough women on boards, particularly women of colour and Indigenous women. We need to open more doors for everyone,” said YWCA Edmonton
