Empowering Women & Pursuing Gender Equality in Canada and Abroad – developing a CICan Gender Equality Strategy (E/SI)

May 6, 2019 | 15:45 - 16:30

Location: Peller D
Track: Going Global

What does gender equality mean to your institution, and why do you think it matters? Building on the gender equality panel held during CICan’s 2018 annual conference and based on the experiences of international, national and local partners, it is clear that there are many different interpretations of what gender equality means for us in Canada, at our institutions, and in our international partnerships. CICan has been working on gender equality issues in Canada and abroad for many years, and as an association that harnesses the expertise of its members in its programming, the time is overdue to develop a CICan Gender Equality Strategy. CICan wishes to use the session to consult its members and partners for the Strategy that would inform its work in Canada and abroad and would reflect on the continuously evolving discussion on the state of gender equality in training, skills development, and international development work.
