Call for Abstracts for the 2023 Gender-based Analysis Plus Conference

Conference Overview

Canadian Equality Consulting’s third annual virtual Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA Plus, formerly GBA+)  Conference is here to provide a pathway forward and build a supportive community for participants to:

  • Learn the ins and outs of the powerful intersectional equity tool GBA Plus and how it can be integrated into your work.
  • Explore leading intersectional quantitative and qualitative data-gathering practices and trauma-informed methods.
  • Unpack successful GBA Plus case studies and lessons learned to enhance buy-in and ensure sustainability.
  • Learn tangible and actionable tools and strategies in completing a successful analysis of GBA Plus while adapting the tool to meet one’s priorities of anti-racism, de-colonization, or indigenization.
