At April Now, we help listed companies improve their operating performance and meet their social obligations by helping build their board of directors and leadership teams. propriety scoring system leverages public data to measure diversity, and offers an un-biased diversity score that can be used to compare companies and measure progress against benchmarks and guidelines.

About April Now
April Now was founded in 2012 by five Canadian visionaries working in the airline, industrial and technology sectors. Originally a networking group for professional woman, membership quickly expanded from the founders to sixteen core members. As membership grew, April Now launched a website, blog and Twitter feed, providing women everywhere with a one-stop source for information and inspiration in their careers and lives. In 2016, April Now took the next step, leveraging the talent of its founders and associates to launch a niche focused consulting business for Canadian and U.S. listed companies. We now focus on fostering female and minority talent, developing talent pipelines, and meeting diversity guidelines.
