Canada has been falling behind with women’s leadership,with considerably less than 30% of corporate boards comprising of women. Organizations like the Women’s Executive Network are running programs specifically designed to help fix that gap, however there’s a long way to go yet.
Or is there? Tina Crouse, Funding and Investment strategist, has a bit of news that is going to surprise you. She’s making a movie to let the whole world know that when it comes to Social Finance, Canada has been leading the way with women leadership.
This week, we are talking with Tina about her upcoming films SKIRTS! and her sense of vocation toward social finance.
What is social investing? This is a great video to explain:
Vocation: having a special urge, inclination, or predisposition to a particular calling or career which meets our spiritual need to make a difference and to give meaning to our life’s purpose. It is a drive to fulfil a social responsibility, a willingness to contribute to society, to our social groups, and generally to the welfare of others.
