4. We’re working on a women’s economic empowerment strategy that is focused on four things:

  1. Encouraging young women to explore and participate in different educational and career streams (e.g. entrepreneurship, trades, science, technology, arts, engineering and math)
  2. Working with communities across Ontario to improve women’s economic security
  3. Supporting women’s continued career progression, mentorship and leadership opportunities
  4. Creating social awareness about gender equity at home, work, in schools, and all public institutions, in partnership with all Ontarians 

6. Women’s economic empowerment requires support and action from everyone, including:

  • schools and educational institutions
  • businesses and private sector organizations
  • community and non-profit organizations
  • all levels of government
  • Indigenous communities (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) and organizations
  • community centres and community hubs
  • communications sector, including mass and social media
