Woman of the Day is: Jenny Young

Updated: Aug 5

To celebrate and inspire women in Canada, the BCCTC launched the ‘Woman of the Day’ Campaign (WoD) on February 25th, 2017, as part of BCCTC’s Women in Business event.


The campaign profiles a variety of women, from entrepreneurs to those established on the corporate ladder. The aim is to demonstrate the huge amount that women have achieved in Canada so far, to feel proud and to encourage women to be unstoppable.


Their interviews also provide an insight into the issues they have faced and their opinions on issues that women still face in business in 21st Century Canada.

British Consulate General Toronto "My advice to women in business is to support, encourage, and celebrate women in your team! This can look like making sure conversations at work are diverse and inclusive of women, raising your voice when you see bias against women in the workplace, or making a special effort to recognize their achievements, especially ones that might usually go unrecognized. We all benefit from lifting each other up!"

A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
