The Rosie Resource Portal

The Rosie Resource Portal is part of the Modern-Day Rosie the Riveter-Inspired Initiative, one of the 5 Initiatives at The Prosperity Project. Here, you will find information online targeted at women and girls, which celebrates and profiles women in STEM, skilled trades and leadership; identifies employment pathways, programs, and tools; and shares information on the progress women are making, including promising practices employers are embracing.

The Rosie Resource Portal will act as ‘one-stop-shop’ that will tackle women’s lack of awareness of training/job opportunities and limited access to role models/mentors. It will focus on inspiring women to make informed decisions about their education, training, and employment pathways. It also aims to increase the number of women in sectors and jobs where they are under-represented and have a low risk of automation. This will mitigate the risk that of women, including women in marginalized communities, being disproportionately affected by COVID-19.

What is The Prosperity Project?​

The Prosperity Project™ is a new not-for-profit organization founded to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadian women who are being disproportionately affected. The Project is pan-Canadian in scope and fills an important need to explicitly link women and prosperity, underscoring the economic importance of gender equality during the COVID-19 pre-recovery, recovery and post-recovery periods. We apply an intersectional identities and inclusivity lens to serve women who also identify as Indigenous, women of colour, refugees, persons with disabilities and/or LGBTQ2+. We recognize that different approaches are required to meet the distinct needs of all Canadian women including First Nations, Inuit and Métis women. The Project acknowledges the unique needs of women of colour and will enlist this broad spectrum.

We are currently identifying partner organizations in order to deliver our programs. The Project was conceived by a diverse group of more than 60 female leaders from across Canada who will be actively supporting The Prosperity Project in important ways. The organization was founded and is being led by Women’s Executive Network and Canadian Board Diversity Council Founder, Pamela Jeffery.
