#DriversofGrowth Action Plan is now available.

Unleashing the Potential of Women: An Economic Action Plan was developed from ideas discussed at the Women's Economic Forum's held in November 2016, and includes actionable recommendations for private sector organizations, governments, public institutions, and individuals to foster growth of women-owned businesses and increase the number of women in senior leadership. 

The Action Plan represents the collective efforts, ideas, and contributions of a diverse and knowledgeable group of stakeholders from Newfoundland & Labrador and will serve to engage every member of the community in contributing to the economic growth and impact of women.

The Action Plan was launched at a press conference on June 14, 2017 and is now available in both digital and hard copy.
