For a just recovery from the pandemic, it is more pressing than ever to invest in women, girls, Two-Spirit and gender-diverse people. From a lack of representation in political and decision-making positions to increasing wage gaps, economic inequalities and staggering rates of gender-based violence, it’s clear that we have work to do. 

This October, we will be releasing a suite of Vital Signs reports focused on gender equality in Canada. The three reports – Power, Peace, and Planet –  will speak to the ongoing obstacles to gender equality, the consequences of COVID-19, and the role that community foundations can play in a just recovery.

We invite you to join Andrea Dicks, President of Community Foundations of Canada in a conversation with leaders from across the country on the findings of the report.


Opening remarks provided by The Honourable Maryam Monsef, Minister for Women and Gender Equality and Rural Economic Development

Joy Nnadi, PsyD Candidate, University of Prince Edward Island, RBC FFWD2020 Summit Facilitator
