The Equal Pay Coalition and Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women invite you to Rising Together: Women for a Just Economy – a series of six free cross-country strategy and mobilizing webinars.

Join women’s organizations, trade unions and community organizations mobilizing on issues of decent work, gender-based violence, decolonization, racial justice, disability inclusion, climate justice, migrant rights, the care economy and more.

Through the webinar series we are collaborating to share common concerns and identify common ground, build strategy and plan actions to address the root causes of economic marginalization that hits women, Indigenous and racialized communities hardest.

Join our second webinar on Wednesday 12 August at 7:00 p.m. EDT

The link to the webinar will be sent to registrants a few days before the event.
