Gender Equality Network of Canada (GENC) meeting in Vancouver



The Gender Equality Network of Canada (GENC) is a national network of more than 130 women leaders from across Canada, initiated by the Canadian Women’s Foundation and funded by Status of Women Canada. Launched in September 2017, it brings together women leaders to advocate for policy changes, build inclusive intersectional leadership, and take collective action to advance gender equality in Canada. Bonnie Brayton and Doris Rajan from IRIS Institutes moderated a panel discussion on “Inclusive, Integrated and Intersectional Practice: Build it and they will come!” Several other women leaders with disabilities were also in attendance, including Joyce Fosssella, Susana Deranger, Fran Odette, Nihal Elwan, and Barb Goode.
