Sister2Sister Leadership Summit: Putting women and girls at the centre of pandemic recovery
June 12, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on our societies and economies, of which women, especially women of colour, Indigenous women, and low-income women, have been disproportionately impacted.
An upcoming virtual event on the “Impact of COVID-19 on Gender Equality” organized and hosted by the Sister2Sister program, at Newcomer Women’s Services, Toronto, spotlights this issue.
The free day-long virtual summit looks at the impacts of COVID-19 through an intersectional gendered lens in order to build a resilient world, especially for the women and girls at the centre of recovery. The Sister2Sister program supports the journey to recovery. The women in this program are learning about gender-based violence, human rights, which are women’s rights, community activism, the importance of mentorships and self-advocacy.
