Women at Revera

Diversity is strength
By Cathie Brow
Throughout my career and personal life, there have been many women who have inspired me. At Revera, I’m regularly impressed with the strong women who live at our residences and homes. I’m grateful for the opportunity to be able to tap into their decades of lived experience and the wisdom that comes with it, as I know our employees are as well.

Revera is a terrific place to be a woman. We are ahead of curve when it comes to empowering women in the workforce and our core values – respect, integrity, compassion and excellence – represent the diversity and equality we strive for in our work culture.

In fact, women are well-represented throughout our company with 84 per cent of our overall Canadian workforce being women. A third of our senior leadership team are women. Almost 74 per cent of our retirement residences and long term care homes are led by women. Nearly half of our vice presidents and almost 60 per cent of our directors are women. You get the picture.
“We are a team with a common goal: to support our residents and serve them so that they can live life to the fullest.”
I’m proud of the culture that we’ve built at Revera. We were recently recognized by Waterstone Human Capital as one of Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures. This award is a testament to the incredible people who work at Revera. We are a team with a common goal: to support our residents and serve them so that they can live life to the fullest.

We find opportunities to celebrate the accomplishments of our team and our residents. The Revera and Reel Youth Film Project at Granite Landing in Cambridge recognizes some of the incredible women who live there. The theme for this project is Women’s Wisdom and I encourage everyone to watch the gala and these ten new short films.

At Revera, we pride ourselves on being an industry leader. I believe we’re also leaders in our communities for our environment that welcomes the meaningful contributions of people who at points in history have been excluded from contributing: women, people of colour, people from the LGBTQ+ community, and older adults. Revera doesn’t believe in ‘can’t.’ Instead, we focus on the possibilities when barriers are removed and people are encouraged to reach for the stars.
