Enterprise Holdings’ Canadian Women in Leadership Forum is held annually and is a key driver in encouraging women to develop leadership skills and advance within the company. The forum, hosted by the Canadian Diversity Team, is part of Enterprise Holdings' commitment to support women leaders by preparing them for future leadership positions and providing them with resources to succeed in their careers at Enterprise Holdings.
The goal of this program is to support women throughout their careers to be successful and help them achieve their goals. Women are selected for the program and receive training to enhance their communication skills, build their personal brand, network, participate in mentoring and improve their interview skills for future job opportunities within the company.
The day serves as an opportunity to encourage female leaders to grow their careers. Participants attend panel discussions led by members of the Canadian leadership team. They share impactful personal stories and firsthand experiences on topics including personal branding and overcoming obstacles. There are also presentations on a variety of subjects, such as global mobility and parental leave policies. In addition, general managers lead small group breakout sessions, sharing best practices for career development and effective interview skills and techniques.
The Canadian Women in Leadership Forum leaves women inspired and armed with resources to advance their careers at Enterprise Holdings. In 2019, women in leadership positions at Enterprise increased to 20 percent in Canada!
