Our Story

GROW Women Leaders

An estimated 30% of highly qualified visible minority women are less likely to get a job matched with education, while 21% experiences discrimination. This appalling statistic is part of what launched our initiative and prompted further research into the inequalities that exist through projects such as Project 150.


Project 150:

Untold Stories of Immigrants also known as Project 150 included extensive interviews and a collection of stories from more than 200 women across Canada. These women overcame many adversities to become successful immigrant women in Canada. Their stories were used to inspire thousands of other women across the country through the following activities:

* Speak Out Women Series

* Award Night of Accomplished Immigrant Women in Canada: a yearly event with speakers and awards given to outstanding women in various areas and vocations

* Book Publishing: The publishing of Project 150: Untold Stories Of Immigrant Women in Canada: Challenges, Successes & Accomplishments.

It was during the course of Project 150 and through the research that I realized that there were similar gaps and barriers women were facing that needed a solution. Women, especially immigrant and BIWoC women needed guidance, connections, and support on how to move forwards with their careers, and

a way to break through some of the systemic barriers they were facing. Through my own experiences as an immigrant woman, and those gathered during Project 150, I believe that the best way to bridge the gap of inequalities is a well-calculated measure of helping women get hired and advance their career, while creating opportunities for companies and professionals to grow and thrive.

Women, especially immigrants and minorities, get support in connecting with employers looking to diversify their workplace. We are building a database of diverse, educated, and talented professionals to match with companies looking to diversify and drive business growth.

Join our movement to be part of our story to build a better workplace for all!

Hire well and hire better.
