Women typically experience a longer and more circuitous rise to the C-suite than men, but these challenges are significantly amplified for Black women, Indigenous women and women of colour.

According to a 2022 report from The Prosperity Project, BIPOC women hold only 6.2 per cent of women-held board, executive, senior management and pipeline positions collectively.

On May 30, Dayo Kefentse, Content Strategist with The Globe and Mail’s Globe Content Studio, hosted a webcast on how organizations can increase the representation of BIPOC women across leadership levels.
