Banking institutions across Canada might have moved the needle slightly when it comes to gender equality but, on the capital-markets side of things, women fall far short of equal representation.
According to a recent McKinsey Global Institute report, gender parity could unlock $28 trillion of additional annual gross domestic product by 2025 – equivalent to the U.S. and Chinese economies combined.
The report found that 240 million workers could be potentially added to the labour force through higher female participation.
