Annual report 2021-2022

It’s more than 235 women who has been supported towards financial independence.

It is undeniable that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significantly negative impact on the economic and social situation of women by profoundly disrupting their career paths and their self-esteem. Many of them have had to reorient themselves professionally to improve their living conditions. These decisions do not come without insecurities and questions. Faced with this major issue, the Lise Watier Foundation’s Let’s Start Up program is a promising solution to help women get back on their professional path to financial independence.

This year, the Foundation’s team worked on several strategic projects.

  • The integration of training focused on the development of entrepreneurial skills and attitudes to enrich the professional practice of women
  • The offer of diversified and relevant continuing education for our community of participants and graduates
  • The launch of the Let’s Start Up program in Toronto
