Event: Improve gender equality in Canada by sharing your insights.

Platform: Zoom Meeting (Details will be emailed to you after registration)

This has been a year like no other, and the Canadian Women’s Foundation needs your help to chart a new course towards gender equality.

In 1991, visionary feminists founded the Canadian Women’s Foundation to build a path toward equality. 30 years later, we move into an uncertain future. The pandemic has shaken the foundations of progress and exacerbated the cracks of inequality: rising gendered violence, the demands of unpaid caregiving, the devaluing of “women’s work”, and a widening poverty gap, to name a few. And the gaps are greater for those who face more barriers due to racism, ableism, transphobia, heterosexism, and other forms of discrimination.

As Canada’s public foundation for gender equality, the Canadian Women’s Foundation has raised more than $130 million to fund over 2,000 life-transforming programs throughout the country. And we sit at every significant policy table that effects the lives of women, gender diverse people. With you by our side, we can drive permanent change.

We need volunteers who are passionate about gender equality to help us shape our messaging, fundraising and public engagement.

Please volunteer for a 60 minute virtual focus group where we will dive into your thoughts on:

  • The biggest barriers you see for women, girls and gender diverse people in Canada
  • The best opportunities you see to advance inclusion for women, girls and gender diverse people
  • How we can quantify meaningful change
  • The most impactful way to engage Canadians in the movement for gender equality

These sessions will be facilitated by the Canadian Women’s Foundation and there will be some light advance reading.

Dates:

  • Tuesday, May 4 from 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM (Eastern)
  • Friday, May 7 from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (Eastern)
  • Monday, May 10 from 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (Eastern)

Please register with your preferred date only.
