Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy notes the importance of working with and supporting local women’s rights organizations. As Canada develops feminist international responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to explore how we can engage and support women’s rights organizations.

This interactive discussion will examine what we can learn from past initiatives and identify promising ways to move forward – to consult with, learn from, support, and strengthen women’s rights and feminist organizations.


The agenda will include reflections on the Women’s Voice and Leadership program and inputs from Liz Williams (Gender Equality Division at Global Affairs Canada) on how GAC is approaching supporting women’s organizations in its COVID-19 response. Breakout rooms will provide opportunities to develop recommendations in smaller groups. A discussion paper will be circulated in advance and a summary document will be prepared after the event.
