Webinar – Global Affairs’ Approaches to Gender Equality

February 6, 2020 @ 4:30 am - 6:00 am

This event was originally scheduled for January 14, 2020. It has been rescheduled for February 6, 2020 from 12:30pm to 2:00pm.

Join us for the first of a series of BCCIC webinars focused on the different aspects of working with gender equality. The first webinar will look at how to work with Global Affairs’s Canada’s approach to gender equality and granting requirements. For international non-profits seeking to work with GAC it is essential to know how GAC understands, funds and works with gender equality and the expectations that they have in terms of impacts, program management and monitoring and evaluation. This webinar will provide an introduction to GAC approaches to gender equality for organizations already working with their own definitions and approaches to gender equality as well as for those seeking to incorporate this work into their programming for the first time.

The webinar will be facilitated by Dr. Laura Parisi from the University of Victoria (full bio below) and will address the topics of:


  • The FIAP and GAC’s approach to Gender Equality
  • Key gender equality requirements for organization seeking funding from GAC
  • Trends and patterns regarding how and who GAC is working with to achieve gender equality

This 1.5 hour webinar will touch on these topics while allowing ample time for questions and answers with webinar participants. Please register for the webinar through the link below and let us know what your learning priorities are.
