Women of colour
“On the journey to parity, leave no woman behind.
Let’s work together and transform the workplace.”
Valuing the most marginalized people in the workplace will mean inclusion for all.
Who we are
WOCThrive is a community of women and men experts who know what needs to be done to achieve positive disruption in the workplace.
What we do
We engage all stakeholders to ensure women of colour take their place in leadership and get the recognition they have earned.
WOCThrive is an organization led by women of colour who understand their unique challenges and know what needs to be done to effectively identify gaps, implement solutions, and create opportunities for diverse female talent to thrive, lead and contribute. We know that creating inclusive environments for WOC has collateral benefits for a more engaged, innovative and high performing workforce overall.
How to get involved
If your organization has services or programs that you believe would be helpful to progressing women of colour, we want to hear from you!
We cannot do this without corporations and foundations contributing to these solutions. We believe that all sectors can play an important role in moving the needle on creating inclusive workplaces and ensuring that women of colour feature in their talent pipeline and in leadership positions. Our sponsorship packages are designed so that you can find the level that is aligned with your capacity and values. Join Us!
“We will only achieve inclusive workplaces when everyone has access to opportunities.”

“We believe that parity without diversity is exclusion, inequity & inequality!”
President and Chief Inclusion Officer
“The uncomfortable fact is that by focussing on gender parity and Black, Indigenous and people of colour without acknowledging and addressing the unique obstacles women of colour confront, has resulted in women of colour being left behind.”
Nicole Piggott has spent her career championing inclusive workplaces. Before taking the helm of Women of Colour Thrive, Nicole held senior leadership positions at Women in Governance, Bombardier Aerospace, RioTinto, Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOCC), and FedEx Canada.
