The aim of the 36-month project is to identify the existing barriers companies face in relation to gender equality, and create and refine strategies to overcome them. The expected outcome is a Gender Equality Blueprint ? a common framework that will lead Canadian business on the path to gender equality in the workplace and beyond.
