Shifting the Power: Opportunities for Innovative Partnerships with Women’s Movements

May 01, 2018
  • Description

The launch of Canada's Feminist International Assistance Policy in June 2017 included an allocation of $150 million over five years to the Women's Voice and Leadership Program, signaling a commitment to work closely with local women's organizations to advance the Sustainable Development Goals. This presents an extraordinary opportunity for Canada to show global leadership. 

To explore practical and creative ways of delivering on this commitment, The MATCH International Women's Fund, the Nobel Women's Initiative, and Global Affairs Canada hosted a panel and workshop that tapped the experience and wisdom of international experts, human rights activists, government officials, and civil society partners. 

This report has been prepared by the Nobel Women's Initiative and The MATCH Fund as a summary of this two-day event.
