Metrolinx celebrates strong voices for International Women’s Day
Focusing on the women at Metrolinx who work together to connect our communities.
Mar 8, 2019
We actually do like to brag.
At least when it comes to those who work for, or with, Metrolinx. Because we believe the talent pool we draw from is deep and worth celebrating – and hearing from.
For International Women’s Day 2019, we’re focusing on all of the women at Metrolinx and its partners who work together to connect our communities to get you there better, faster, easier. The theme for this year is ‘Balance is Better’. Here at Metrolinx we agree.
One of our key objectives is to achieve gender balance in our workplace to 50 per cent for senior managers and above by 2021. Good leadership is only possible when you include diverse voices at the table, reflecting the communities we serve. On gender balance, we’re there with our Senior Management Team and we’re just about there with our Board of Directors. Work continues to achieve our goal of gender balance across the organization.
Our President and CEO, Phil Verster, spoke about the importance of the makeup of our workforce at Metrolinx at an International Women’s Day panel hosted by ULI Toronto.
To mark the day, as well as Women’s History Month, we asked female staff members, along with those individuals Metrolinx has partnered with: “What makes you proud of your work?”
