2016: A Year in Review - Lean in Canada

There is no moving forward without taking the time to look back. As we begin to embark on a new journey in 2017, we’re excited to take the time to remember the past year.


Our Year in Review infographic highlights some of our favourite moments of 2016, and provides us with a map of some our incredible accomplishments. These accomplishments all act as reminders of challenges overcome and moments of growth. They are also a reminder of how strong we are when we work together – the endless support we’ve received from Lean In Canada members and volunteers has been pivotal to our growth.

These accomplishments are also the catalyst to our new goals. We look forward to going beyond our expectations this year, and we have some big plans to support this growth. We hope that our upcoming endeavours will further propel you on your journeys in career and leadership, and that we can continue working together to elevate each other.
