Support The Prosperity Project
Our goal is to help protect and improve women’s and girls’ economic security and prosperity during COVID-19 recovery to ensure that it does not erase the progress we have made towards gender equality.
When women succeed, we all prosper
The Prosperity Project™ is a not-for-profit organization founded in May 2020 to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian women who are being disproportionately affected. It is pan-Canadian in scope and fills an important need to explicitly link women and prosperity, underscoring the economic importance of gender equality during the COVID-19 pre-recovery, recovery and post-recovery periods. We apply intersectional identities and inclusivity lenses to all that we do to serve women who have been the hardest hit including women who identify as BIPOC, refugees, persons with disabilities and/or LGBTQ2S+.
We recognize that different approaches are required to meet the distinct needs of all Canadian women including First Nations, Inuit and Métis women. The Project acknowledges the unique needs of women of colour and will enlist this broad spectrum. We are proud to work with a growing group of organizations that are engaged with us as Founding Corporate Partners and Supporters (Founding Believers and Corporate Members) in order to deliver our five Initiatives.
The Prosperity Project was conceived by a diverse group of 62 female leaders from across Canada who are actively engaged in many important ways. The organization was founded and is being led by Women’s Executive Network and Canadian Board Diversity Council Founder, Pamela Jeffery.
