Feminist Response and Recovery - IDEA4 Gender Equality

To advance women’s recovery from the impacts of COVID-19 through targeted systemic change to the Canadian workplace, marketplace and community.

The project will explore strategies and solutions to address structural barriers associated with: women’s time famine and burden of care, access to affordable quality childcare, flexible work arrangements, leadership and wage gaps. We will address systemic barriers by advancing inclusive policies and practices, increasing networks and collaboration to accelerate systemic change, and address harmful gender norms and attitudes to women’s equality. It will spark a gender+ equality innovation challenge workplace culture. We will use collaborative partnerships across businesses, community and government, through an online community platform. We will address discriminatory legislation, policies, and practices preventing women and girls from participating in the social, political and economic spheres; design and implement policies and practices to increase women’s labour market participation and opportunities; and engage men and boys to combat harmful gender norms and advance gender equality.
