Wave Makes 2019 List of Best Workplaces™ for Women

Toronto | March 27, 2019

Wave is honored to announce that for the second year in a row, it's been named one of the 2019 Best Workplaces ™ for Women by Great Places to Work®.

The list of Best Workplaces™ for Women is based on direct feedback from employees of the hundreds of organizations that were surveyed by Great Places to Work® GPTW surveys more than 8,000 organizations representing more than 10 million employers in more than 50 countries to compile its list.

“One of the key factors we believe helps us to thrive is that we don’t simply hire for diversity, we hire the best people then invest in and grow them. Often, those people just happen to be women,” says Ashira Gobrin, SVP, People and Culture. “Our culture of empowering each Waver, and providing mentoring or training to be better people and better professionals in every facet from technology to communication, which elevates the entire team. We believe this makes Wave a great workplace not just for women, but for everyone.”

To be included on the Best Workplaces™ for Women list, a company must:

  • Have a minimum of 15 female employees
  • Have at least 90% of employees agree the workplace is safe and people are treated fairly regardless of gender
  • Offer programs and practices that promote fair treatment and advancement for women

“In the last couple of years, we’ve invested time and effort to move the needle on the gender breakdown for our ever-growing team. We’ve shifted from 80% male/20% female to 62% male/38% female, with an increasing number of women in senior roles. We have more work to do, but we’re heading in the right direction.” says Gobrin.

Wave has won numerous awards for growth, innovation and company culture, including Deloitte Fast 50, Deloitte North American Fast 500, KPMG Fintech 100, CB Insights Fintech 250, Canadian Innovation Awards (Financial Services), Canada's Best Workplaces and many more.
