Women General Counsel Canada, an organization established by women general counsel, is launching a unique program to bolster the leadership and business skills of senior women in-house lawyers to propel them up the corporate ladder.

The program is aimed at women general counsel who are already in senior positions but are looking to take the next step—to become a CEO or a director of a board, for example, said Bindu Cudjoe, one of the program’s drivers and senior vice president and GC of Canadian Western Bank.
