Gender inclusive analysis policy and program training

Who it's for: Yukon government staff
Date: This workshop is held twice a year

What it's about: This one-day workshop uses Yukon-based policies and programs to explore how gender inclusive analysis can be used to assess and strengthen policies, programs, and legislation for women and men. It addresses differences resulting from: gender, race, class, ability, age, and sexual orientation. Participants will use statistics, social policy resources and case studies as they learn to apply a diversity lens to their work.
