Dedicated Virtual Session for 2SLGBTQQIA+ People
This interactive workshop will explore how Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) tools can support First Nations in carrying out intersectional, inclusive, equity, and justice-seeking approaches to governance, advocacy, policy, and programs that are grounded in First Nations’ diverse cultures.
GBA+ is intended to support the inclusion of the perspectives, experiences, priorities, needs, and strengths of all people who will be impacted by the work that is taking place. This session is facilitated by Chastity Davis-Alphonse and Natalie Clark, who are working in partnership with the BCAFN to develop a First Nations Approaches to GBA+ Toolkit.
Please note that while people are welcome to attend more than one workshop, each workshop will cover the same content and discussion questions.
We acknowledge Women and Gender Equality Canada‘s financial support for the development of this Toolkit.
