Annual report 2022-2023
It’s more than 280 women who has been supported towards financial independence.
The Lise Watier Foundation has experienced a year of consolidation and growth to meet the growing needs of women living in situations of economic, social or professional vulnerability. Through the Let’s Start Up program, we helped 281 women achieve economic fulfillment, a remarkable 16% increase over the previous year.
This year, in addition to training and supporting women to achieve sustainable financial independence, the Foundation team worked on several strategic projects.
- A strategic plan to rethink the Foundation’s future and take concrete action on a number of systemic issues that impact women’s economic development (skills development, financial literacy, entrepreneurship, post-secondary education, access to a network and prevention for tomorrow’s women);
- The creation of new partnerships with local organizations, to better position us in the entrepreneurial and community ecosystem;
- 40 diversified and relevant training courses and activities to encourage continuing education among Let’s Start Up participants and graduates;
- The organization of several networking events so that Let’s Start Up program participants and graduates can get together, build a network, break isolation and develop a sense of belonging to the Foundation.
