Purpose: This 36-month project will contribute to enhancing action to improve conditions for women in Canada. It will work with stakeholders to undertake a systems change evaluation of multi-stakeholder and multi-sectoral initiatives and share promising practices among stakeholders working across the country to increase support on issues impacting women, and overcome systemic barriers to ensure women’s voices are active in the democratic and public life of Canada. Using gender-based analysis and an intersectional framework, it will identify promising practices in developing and maintaining equitable and sustainable multi-sector partnerships as well as systemic change initiatives addressing gender equality issues to inform similar initiatives in the future. The project will document the overall results and promising practices, including learnings about collective impact to bring about systemic change using a gendered lens, and disseminate key findings.
