Join the Whistler Chamber as we learn about POWDER (Providing Opportunity for Women through Diversity, Equality and Respect) a Whistler Blackcomb initiative being implemented across the Vail Resorts network. POWDER focuses on diversity and inclusivity by educating and empowering women and men to shift perceptions of leadership, career pathways, and cultural norms that influence our decision-making and behaviours. Geoff, Kate and Miriam will share learnings from re-thinking hiring practices, scheduling, development, advocacy, education, recognition and role descriptions, and discuss how this work has begun a transformational cultural shift.
