Findings from a new Canadian report show that five years after graduation from publicly funded colleges and universities, women earn less than men in every credential (e.g. college certificates, doctoral degrees) and every field of study (e.g. sciences, humanities, engineering).

The Coalition to Empower Gender Equality is actively recruiting volunteers to serve as part of the Coalition Working Group to develop the terms of reference, mission, values and scope of the Coalition with the end goal of establishing a board.

In order to develop these guiding principles the Coalition is issuing a call for volunteer Gender Equality champions to make these essential decisions.
