The Face of Leadership™ Initiative

Over the past 20 years, Minerva has worked with established and emerging leaders, preparing them to take on advanced responsibility and leadership roles in business, government and community.

But despite our efforts, we are not creating change fast enough.

At the present rate of change, it will take 170 years to close the gender gap*.

According to research by McKinsey & Co, women are less likely to be promoted to senior level positions than men. Women receive less feedback in the workplace, and face more push-back when they negotiate. They also have less access to senior-level sponsors.

That’s why we launched the Face of Leadership™ in 2015. Aimed at closing the gender gap, this initiative started a conversation about what’s working and how to advance leadership opportunities for women in BC.
