This webinar series took place on November 29 and December 12, 2023. 

Webinar 1 | Integrating Gender-based Analysis Plus into your Organization

Gender-based Analysis (GBA) Plus offers a valuable starting point for considering equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) within our organizations and the work that we do. This webinar provides an overview of GBA Plus and offers a brief discussion of the national settlement sector Enhancing GBA Plus Capacity project. The session shows how GBA Plus can be meaningfully integrated into their organization’s policies and practices to ensure that the services and programming they provide to newcomers are equitable and inclusive. This webinar also offers guidance on developing an organizational EDI policy for those that do not already have one in place. This session provides foundational knowledge of GBA Plus.

Webinar 2 | Integrating Gender-based Analysis Plus into your Funding Applications

This webinar focuses on applying the knowledge of GBA Plus gained from the first webinar in this series to the funding proposal submission process. This session explores the importance of using a GBA Plus lens at this critical stage of project and program development and provides guidance on how to effectively and meaningfully do so. It allows you to consider how you might incorporate this intersectional lens into your proposals for the upcoming Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada call for proposals to ensure that the clients’ diverse needs are fully accounted for.
