Morguard continues to innovate to support women. Longstanding and new initiatives to empower and celebrate women's achievements remained crucial during the pandemic.
Over the years, International Women's Day has continued to be a milestone at Morguard. In each celebration, we challenge stereotypes, fight bias and broaden perceptions about the role women play in society while celebrating their social, economic, cultural and political achievements. The 2020 event hosted by Morguard brought employees together to help create a gender-equal world through education and open discussions about the celebration's meaning and ways to encourage and honour women beyond the day in March.
Morguard has also found innovative ways to support women across communities. Initiatives such as BeYou empower and educate girls and young women across Canada, encouraging them to celebrate their growth, diversity and self-worth. To expand our work supporting women, our teams at 77 Bloor St. W., 65 Overlea Blvd. and 200 Yorkland Blvd. in Toronto donated honey and honey-derived goods produced at their bee hotels to The Redwood, a women's and children's shelter that received 150 beeswax candles and 300 lip balms and soap bars in late 2020.
Empowering women continues to be a priority that we will be proud to continue in 2021.
