Location: Ontario

Mission: Our goal is to bring awareness and empower gender equality by balancing the economic, political, social and employment conditions for gender equality in Ontario.

We want to create gender justice for men, women, and gender diverse people.

As a coalition, we are working to create communities where all individuals have equal access to every opportunity, unbiased by gender. We believe that gender justice can only be achieved when all genders are included. We are actively recruiting new members for our Board (Leadership Committee). We are committed to diversity and inclusion as a priority for the Coalition, valuing members from all intersectionality’s including, genders, cultures, ages, races, orientations, locations, and abilities. Community representation is essential in the collaborative efforts towards gender justice.

Our call for Board members is open until April 30, 2022. Please email your CV/resume and letter of intent to Dr. Amanda Zavitz Chair, Gender Equality Coalition of Ontario at [email protected].

As a member of our working board, you would be expected to attend monthly meetings (virtual is an option), participate in community events, and make regular contributions to one or more aspects of our continuous board work. We seek change in communities by engaging various groups and organizations as well as the wider population in community events, by partnering with other community organizations, and by advocating for positive social change.

This is your opportunity to make a difference. You can be part of an organization resisting gender discrimination across Ontario at all levels. For more information, please check out our website or feel free to contact Dr. Amanda Zavitz, Chair, Gender Equality Coalition of Ontario [email protected].

Racism & Gender Discrimination

The Gender Equality Coalition of Ontario stands strong against racism and gender discrimination. The events of the past weeks remind us that systemic racism is a form of violence that must be eliminated. We see the effects of racism daily in our communities through racialized poverty and unequal access to justice and all forms of healthcare.

This is an important moment in time.  As individuals, as communities, and as a coalition dedicated to empowering Equality, we need to challenge ourselves to undo the effects of systemic racism in our society.  We must acknowledge and become aware of our own biases. The Coalition is committed to doing the work to be an ally and to amplify voices of those who need to be heard.

We will never have Equality until we are all Equal !

Equality Coalition

The Coalition was a result of funding to The Canadian Federation of University Women London Club (CFUW London) to start the Gender Equality Coalition of Ontario. This funding was through a Capacity Building Grant by the Department of Women and Gender Equality Canada.

There are many things to do before this Coalition will be up and running. The next step is to established a Working Group to create Terms of Reference or By-Laws and Operating Procedures or Regulations. If you would like to be considered for the Working Group, please complete the “Get in Touch” steps below and let us know how you would like to contribute to the Coalition.

With Thanks,

Linda Davis, Executive Director – Programming
Dani Bartlett, Executive Director – Advocacy
