The business case and moral imperative for gender equality have never been clearer. To ensure an inclusive and impactful COVID response this project recognizes the decades of social-economic research backed by the brave storytellers, service providers and allies stepping forward to create a shared understanding of the challenges, obstacles, and barriers compounded by the diverse intersecting lived realities of Canadian women highlighted across the pandemic. 

We KNOW what the issues are and we can NOW focus our collective energy on taking real ACTION! 

By providing a safe space for diverse stakeholders to Connect - Share - Listen and Learn we can collaborate in new and adventurous ways to co-create innovative solutions that will improve the lives of all women, their children, and families in every community across Canada.


Join us as we strengthen and build NEW "Partnerships in Action" across diverse sectors and stakeholder groups.  Stakeholders from underrepresented and equity-deserving groups, businesses of all sizes, governments at all levels, and civil society/non-profit/labour and business & professional organizations are committing to taking a refreshingly collaborative approach to relearning and co-creating impactful solutions. 

Anyone can join the online community. Sign up now to be kept informed of events and opportunities to advance your efforts.

You Can Be the Change!  The official launch of the IDEAS4GE Collaborative Solution-building Portal is underway. Help us turn this moment in time into an opportunity to create an impactful multi-stakeholder digital collaborative solution-building workspace.
