Lean In Toronto - Lean in Canada

About Our Network

Dynamic. Diverse. Inspiring. Empowered. These are just a few ways to describe our remarkable city of Toronto. These are also the themes we weave through the Toronto Network of Lean In Canada. Our programs are rooted in thoughtful consideration of Lean In’s purpose, as well as the unique needs of women in Toronto. We strive to provide collaborative, engaging, and empowering programming. We focus on tools, resources, and sense of community that supports the fulfillment of career goals for the women of our city. Our volunteer executives and their teams are some of the most dedicated women around, and they infuse their passion into everything they do with and for Lean In Canada-Toronto. So, Toronto, join us as we build a world where people of every gender can pursue their dreams without bias or other barriers holding them back.

“The partnership with our organization and Lean In has been a positive collaboration. 50 ways to Fight Bias was an informative and educational experience for our employees. Lean In not only provided us with awareness, but also real-life tools and strategies that can be embedded into our business to create impactful and transformative change with respect to breaking the gender bias”
