The Government of Alberta has worked with organizations to help make gender parity more common.

Our work in women’s leadership includes:

  • Working to increase the number of diversity programs in government.
  • Supporting programs to increase gender parity in elected positions. This could be training, mentoring or communities of practice.
  • Leading the Women in Leadership initiative in the government to help increase the number of women in executive roles.
  • Supporting strong workplace policies on flexible and alternative work.
  • Researching the barriers women in government may experience when striving for leadership.
