Osler releases 2016 report on gender diversity disclosure at TSX-listed companies

TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP is pleased to announce the release of Osler's 2016 Diversity Disclosure Practices: Leadership roles at TSX-listed companies, our second annual comprehensive report on the state of gender diversity in corporate leadership at TSX companies.

A team of lawyers from Osler's Corporate Group conducted an extensive review and analysis of diversity disclosure made by TSX companies this year to July 31, compared to the same period last year, and examined disclosure for the full 2015 calendar year. The report showcases the results of this analysis and offers a snapshot of the current status of the representation of women on boards and in executive officer positions in corporate Canada. The publication also puts those results in context by highlighting developments over the last 12 months affecting gender diversity in Canada and abroad, and provides examples of best practices and leadership by companies in this area.

"Improving gender diversity continues to be a key focus of legislators, regulators and the public," explains Osler partner Andrew MacDougall. "With this report, we shine a light on the progress TSX-listed companies have made in making gender diversity a priority to date and provide insight into the many areas where there is still room for improvement."       

The full report Diversity Disclosure Practices: Leadership roles at TSX-listed companies is available for download from Osler's website.
