The Canadian Career Plus Program (CC+P™)
GROW has developed a training program aimed at solving the persistent workplace issues facing professional women of colour, particularly immigrants in Canada. Canadian Career Plus Program (CC+P) is professional training meant to address the needs of both the employer and the employee at the same time.
Supported by NAIT, mentors, experts, and other partners, it’s geared towards entry-level supervisory and managerial roles in a Canadian workplace, with immigrant women, Black Indigenous People of Colour (BIPoC) in mind. It’s a pathway to any industry, business, and civic participation with the country. This is a base flagship training needed to accelerate a woman into professional leadership. Thereafter, they can go further into our specialized entrepreneurship, employment, and civic engagement specializations, that are open to anyone. *Scholarships available for eligible applicants.
Further, we know any woman wanting to aim higher and get into leadership would most likely benefit from some mentorship from a senior manager. Similarly, an aspiring community organizer would certainly benefit from civic leaders’ hands-on knowledge and experience.
We also know that when women are passionate and ambitious, collaborating in one space, growth is inevitable. That’s our belief at GROW and the reason we run the Academy Program. We offer a combination of training, consulting, industry partnering recruiting, in-person and online support to help women to grow into leaders.
We have partnerships with business, industry, academic and civic leaders, some of them have participated at GROW. Our curriculum has an emphasis not only on women, but an added awareness of inclusion, diversity, and best practices for a modern world.
