Purpose: This 36-month project will seek to increase access to advancement opportunities and participation in decision-making processes for women working in activist organizations and labour unions in Montréal. The organization will work with the local chapter of a provincial union and a provincial advocacy organization for people on social assistance in order to create more inclusive and equitable environments by modifying their organizational policies and practices. An intersectional approach will be applied to ensure that diversity factors are taken into account in identifying and testing solutions. Project results will then be shared provincially via the organizations’ networks, notably through a forum and a web-based community of practice.
