OUR DREAM OF GEN1
The Canadian Women’s Foundation has a dream: That Canada will lead the world by creating the first generation to experience real gender equality.
We call this dream GEN1.
Think about that for a moment - the first generation in Canada to experience real gender equality. Because all of the issues affecting women and girls today—violence, poverty, girls’ lack of confidence—are rooted in inequality.
The first generation free of violence. No sexual harassment or assault, no domestic abuse, no sex trafficking.
The first generation of economic equality. No gender wage gap, no glass ceiling, no girls afraid to show their brilliance.
- The first generation of inclusive leadership. Leadership that collaborates and includes marginalized voices.
How will we do it? By building on the work we’ve already done. By continuing to honour those who have gone before us on this journey. By continuing to work closely with grassroots organizations and diverse communities. By continuing to be guided by research. By continuing to listen to the voices if those who are impacted by this issues. Because we believe the best solutions are designed by the people closest to the problem.
