Vision / Mission
Our goal is to to bring awareness and empower gender equality by balancing the economic, political, social and employment conditions for gender equality in Canada.
The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality
The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality (CEGE) is a non-sectarian, non-profit, and non-partisan organization that works to empower women and men to achieve gender equality in our society. We provide a connection for individuals, organizations, businesses and government to discuss issues of inequality and create solutions. Through this process we provide a training ground for developing gender equality in a safe and supportive environment. This enables members to build skills, networks and create an equal society free from discrimination.
The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality (CEGE) was founded in 2019, by the Canadian Federation of University Women – London, through funding by the Ministry of Women and Gender Equality Canada. Our mission, vision, values and principles guide us to our ultimate goal which is to stop bias, discrimination and preference to achieve a gender equal society.
To share the burdens, responsibilities and rewards of our institutions and systems equally between women and men without preference, privilege or discrimination. To ensure a respectful equal status of women with men in our society, including at the table where decisions are made, for a more balanced and empowering existence.
The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality (CEGE) will eliminate discrimination and bias to achieve a gender equal society through education, awareness, advocacy within a supportive network.
