Leading global professional services and investment management firm Colliers is pleased to announce it has been recognized in The Globe and Mail’s 2022 Report on Business Women Lead Here list. This annual editorial benchmark identifies best-in-class executive gender diversity in corporate Canada.

Established in 2020, the Women Lead Here initiative applies a proprietary research methodology to determine Canadian corporations with the highest degree of gender diversity among executive ranks. This initiative highlights businesses that have made tangible, systemic, organizational progress related to executive gender parity.

“Accelerating our progress towards a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future is a firmwide commitment at Colliers,” said Becky Finley, Global Chief Brand & People Officer. “We have been steadfast in our support for gender parity and inclusion – from establishing mentorship programs and employee resources groups to the recent unveiling of our global inclusiveness goal as part of our ESG framework. We are honoured that The Globe and Mail has recognized our efforts.”

Report on Business conducted a journalistic analysis of nearly 500 large publicly traded Canadian companies, evaluating the ratio of female-identifying to male-identifying executives in the top three tiers of executive leadership. The resultant data was applied to a weighted formula that also factored in company performance, diversity and year-to-year change. In total, 74 companies earned the 2022 Women Lead Here seal, with a combined average of 46% of executive roles held by female-identifying individuals.

The full list of 2022 Women Lead Here honourees can be found online now at tgam.ca/WomenLeadHere. The strategies and ideas of winning companies including Colliers will also be showcased at the Women Lead Here webcast, taking place on March 29.
