May 4 – Moving Beyond Theory: How to Apply and Integrate GBA+ Practices Within Your Organization

Date: May 4th ,2022

Time: 12:00pm to 1:00pm, Mountain Time (Edmonton Time)

Format: Virtual

Gender Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) is a tool and approach that helps to analyze your services, products, and processes from a gender and intersectional lens. When applying GBA+ you are better able to explore the needs of different groups of people, as well as recognize their multiple identities (such as gender, race, ethnicity, class, religion, age and mental or physical disability etc.). that impacts their experiences.  
While more and more people are familiarizing themselves with the concept of GBA+, many leaders and staff struggle with the “how to” aspect of the framework.  What does it really mean to apply and embed GBA+ thinking to your workplace policies and practices? Where do you start and what pre-conditions need to be in place?  This webinar focuses on GBA+ applications. The goal is to deepen your understanding of the utilization of GBA+ and demonstrate how you might integrate it into your current projects. 

Participants will learn how GBA+ can be used to:

  • uncover barriers to accessing transportation services and new modes of transportation
  • build practices and policies into organizational structures to reduce barriers and biases in workplace processes
  • explore new ways of thinking and working that centres the experience of historically marginalized and underserved communities

A case study highlighting critical foundational components and outcomes will inspire participants to get started on their own GBA+ journey.
