Do you have any comments on how women can help other women to succeed?
Kelly Auld: Women can help other women by working together, celebrating each other’s successes and stopping thinking the worst about each other. A prime example of this is the #likeagirl commercial that trended and brought me to tears. (See video below)
Anna Aceto-Guerin: There was a time not too long ago when it seemed that if you were a woman in business, you wouldn't necessarily trust other women in business. Now, women have worked hard to become more supportive of each other and develop more mentorship relationships.
Margaret Sullivan Williams: I was impressed by Plan Canada's "Because I'm A Girl" initiative. The biggest take-away for me is that educated women in developing countries directly impact the economic progress of their communities and continue to make improvements in those communities over their whole lives. In contrast, men who become educated often leave to find work elsewhere. By focusing on women's education and the issues surrounding it, initiatives to alleviate poverty are more impactful and sustainable. We are so blessed in Canada to have equal opportunities for education - imagine what the world would be like if all girls and women were able to access education and put their skills and ingenuity towards community improvements!
