The Lise Watier Foundation is pleased to present its latest annual reports.
Annual report 2020-2021
The past year has been one of great uncertainty, especially for women who have been badly affected by the pandemic. In Quebec, two-thirds of the jobs lost in 2020 were held by women. At the dawn of the economic recovery, they are slow to return to the labor market, which could jeopardize the professional advancement of women. Faced with this major challenge, the Foundation’s mission takes on its full meaning and the Let’s Start Up Program is proving to be a promising solution to help women achieve financial independence.
Despite the crisis, the Foundation remained active and engaged in many strategic projects. Our agility and adaptability have enabled us to maintain all of our activities and continue to support more than 200 women!
