Women’s Economic Independence

The Ontario Women’s Directorate, in partnership with ACTEW: A Commitment to Training and Employment for Women, has expanded and revised the guide to career awareness resources for girls and women. Shortcuts to Career Development Resources for Girls and Women is now available in both English and French and includes new sections with on-line resources and information on careers in the fields of science, engineering, technology, trades and other non-traditional occupations. The resource is available in pdf format and can be downloaded free from the ACTEW website. Women’s  economic indepenence also means creating Workplaces that Work for women. This is a business case for creating workplaces that work for women and, by extension, all employees and employers. It features examples of successful strategies from across Canada for effective workplaces and explores the bottom-line results that can be achieved by employment leaders when they commit to creating workplace cultures that attract and retain skilled women.
