Episode 132: The Powerful Perspective on Black History Month & International Women’s Day from Paulette Senior


Paulette Senior is President & CEO of the Canadian Women’s Foundation. She has devoted her career to empowering women and girls to overcome barriers and reach their full potential.

Paulette started her career on the front lines of social service organizations in some of Toronto’s most economically disadvantaged neighbourhoods. She saw how social resources and systemic change could transform women’s lives. Through her work and advocacy with shelters, as well as employment and housing programs, she has earned numerous awards and become one of the most respected women leaders in Canada.

Paulette joined the Foundation in 2016, after 10 years as CEO of YWCA Canada. Her work with the Foundation is guided by the vision of an inclusive, national movement toward gender equity that will strengthen all Canadians.

Paulette is a fun, intelligent, wise individual from whose words we should all glean valuable lessons. Her leadership and her goals for change are calls to action for passionate people, and those who want a change but may not know where to start helping.
