Lafarge Vancouver hosts Minerva BC
Doing our part to develop women leaders on Canada's west coast
December 2019: Minerva BC is a registered charity established in 1999. The charity’s founders were accomplished leaders who knew firsthand the struggles women faced in business, politics and society. They created Minerva because they did not want future generations of women to face those same struggles. They founded Minerva with a vision of “women helping women” and launched the foundation off the side of their desks.
Twenty years later, Minerva BC has touched the lives of over 4,000 girls and women across British Columbia. In December 2019, the Vancouver team hosted Learning to Lead alumna for their annual Executive Days event, providing tours and training to female leaders in the construction industry and taking greater action toward gender equality.
