Foresight is an inclusive community of thought-leaders, innovators, and changemakers. We are proud to recognize #womenleadingcleantech, drawing attention to the pioneering leaders who are championing a green economy across Canada. 

“Inclusive collaboration across teams, organizations, and regions is a critical success factor to large-scale transformation.  Supporting the women in our community, we shine a light on the important and transformative work they are doing to shape the future of cleantech.” – Jeanette Jackson, CEO.

Leading up to and in support of EDC’s Women in Cleantech event, hosted during Cleantech Week (details to come), Foresight will be highlighting pioneering women from across our community. 

Get Involved

We encourage you to join us in amplifying the diverse voices that are shaping the future of cleantech:

  • Spread the word; share & show-up with likes online
