Foresight recognizes the importance of making diversity, equity, and inclusion a core part of our culture. It’s the right thing to do, and it makes good business sense. We support our companies and partners to create diverse and inclusive workplaces in several ways:

  • In collaboration with Export Development Canada, Foresight led a social media campaign in 2020 dedicated to recognizing the women leading cleantech innovation in Canada. This campaign highlighted over 20 women in cleantech leadership roles and was a resounding success with significant engagement and reach on social media. We look forward to continuing to highlight the success of women in cleantech through our events, marketing, and communications initiatives.
