Awareness Campaign: It's Not Complicated

Ontario Power Generation co-presents It’s Not Complicated; a campaign that aims to raise awareness of women’s underrepresentation in STEM, skilled trades and leadership, and ensure women’s participation in Canada’s recovering economy. The It’s Not Complicated imagery highlights professions where women are proportionally under-represented. We are taking this opportunity to show women and girls that if you can see it, you can be it.

The Prosperity Project has created four other important Initiatives to ensure women are not forgotten during the pandemic – and are not left behind when we recover. These range from helping non-profit organizations that focus on women and girls meet funding challenges to researching how COVID-19 is affecting family life, work-life integration and women’s responsibilities at home.
