C-SUITE AND BOARDROOM PREPAREDNESS

Current Reality

  • Black Canadians make up less than 1% of senior executives
  • There are no Black C-suite executives in Canada’s seven
    largest energy companies, six largest banks, five largest
    telecom providers or two largest life insurers
  • In the public sector, there are no Black Canadians as federal deputy ministers or federal court judges. Many Black employees in Canada report discrimination when it comes to promotions
