The Canadian Congress on Inclusive Diversity & Workplace Equity will be bringing some academic, business, social and community experts together at an International #Women’s Day Conference.
with the following objectives:
1) Celebrate the progress of women thus far in the longstanding quest for Gender Equity & Equality.
2) Enlighten hundreds of female & male delegates on the most significant challenges women continue to face in their workplace and communities.
3) Empower hundreds of female & male delegates with the mindset, skillset and toolset to break through their challenges to personal success and socioeconomic and political impact.
4) Offer a roadmap to organizations that wish to develop a sustainable long-term strategy to achieve Gender Equity & Equality in their workplace.
5) Inspire hundreds of female & male delegates to rise above their individualistic concerns to join the global movement that is committed to eradicating even more despicable acts of violence, abuse and oppression against women and girls especially in countries that lack law and order.
SOME CRITICAL LEARNING OUTCOMES FROM CANADA’S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY CELEBRATION
According to UNICEF, gender equality “means that women and men, and girls and boys, enjoy the same rights, resources, opportunities and protections. It does not require that girls and boys, or women and men, be the same, or that they be treated exactly alike.”
