BIV podcast (episode 72): Has the free market failed Canadian women?

Women in Capital Markets CEO Jennifer Reynolds

Why is it that Canada, which touts itself as a progressive nation, still lags so far behind when it comes to representation of women in the C-suite and boardrooms?

Jennifer Reynolds, CEO of Women in Capital Markets, joins the show to discuss why the free market has failed to improve gender diversity and whether it’s time to get the government to correct this.

Hosts Tyler Orton and Hayley Woodin also debate whether the Bank of Canada will raise its benchmark rate this week, whether anyone would actually want ice cream delivered to their homes and why Vancouver’s bike-sharing program is benefitting from corporate memberships.
