TORONTO, In May, I was invited by the Ministry of Women and Gender Equality to speak on a panel hosted by Hon. Maryam Monsef, Minister of International Development and Minister for Women and Gender Equality, about how public-private partnerships can advance gender equality in Canada. I was joined on the panel by Joanna Rotenberg, Group Head (BMO Wealth Management) and Julia Anderson (CEO, Canadian Partnership for Women and Children's Health).
