the women's collection
The Women’s Collection was created with the fundamental belief that educating and empowering women is the key to economic growth, political stability, and social transformation. In support of this we are operating as a For Benefit organization in line with the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals with a focus on the Women’s Empowerment Principles. We are joining this global initiative and are committed to developing and driving cause-based campaigns that support women both locally and internationally.
Our vision is to be the top provider of financial education, financial empowerment and financial wellness for women globally.
Our mission is to deliver a female focused, comprehensive financial literacy and investment program designed to empower and engage women who want financial freedom and independence. We will help women gain and act on the knowledge they need to define and realize their personal and familial goals. The Women’s Collection aspires to become a trusted partner to and advocate for women who are looking to identify and act on the inherent power they possess.
In the Community
We also believe that the gift of opportunity combined with education creates a powerful stabilizing combination that permeates through generations. We are proud to partner with Opportunity International Canada to support female entrepreneurs in developing countries with financial tools and training to build businesses, support their families and positively impact their communities and commit a portion of our annual profits to this cause.
Opportunity International Canada designs, delivers, and scales innovative solutions to transform the lives of those living in poverty through sustainable livelihoods and education. Made up of a global network of change-making organizations, they strive towards a world where everyone is afforded equal opportunity to live a life with dignity and purpose. Opportunity International seeks to make an impact that is far-reaching, holistic, and transformative for clients, their families, their communities, and their futures.
