At Your Workplace

There’s strength in numbers—and in forward-thinking companies that are committed to social responsibility and achieving gender equality in Canada.

The Foundation is grateful to have many long-standing partnerships with companies that are helping to move women and girls out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.

Companies can get involved in many ways:

Partner with us: We partner with companies in many industries across Canada that care about achieving gender equality. Your company can create a powerful legacy by providing long-term support for the Foundation’s work nationally, or by supporting the area of our work that best aligns with your strategic giving objectives. No matter what your corporate social responsibility goals, partnering with the Foundation creates the kind of measurable and long-term impact that will resonate with your stakeholders.

Join Corporate Citizenship for Gender Equality on International Women’s Day (March 8): Celebrate by sponsoring this annual virtual event and invite your employees and customers to recognize the day too. Your involvement will support women and gender-diverse people and grow your company’s knowledge of advancing gender equity at work, in your communities, and all over Canada. Learn more:

Host a corporate event: Looking for a great way to engage your employees around gender equality and make a difference in the lives of women and girls? Your company or corporate team can hold a fundraising event on behalf of the Foundation. Get ideas and register your event.

Launch a cause-marketing campaign: If your company wants to walk the walk on gender equality, get in touch with us. Together we can create a plan that engages your target audience, builds your brand’s profile, and impacts women and girls across Canada. Check out some of the companies supporting the Foundation this way.

Workplace giving programs: Companies can encourage employees to make charitable contributions by setting up a payroll deduction system or by matching employees’ donations to the Foundation.

Have an idea? We want to hear it! We’d love to work with you on a customized plan that integrates our values and achieves your goals.
