GBA+ Awareness Week 2016

From May 16-20, federal public servants from across Canada were invited to participate in the fifth annual Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) Awareness Week . This year, Awareness Week focussed on the theme: Embracing diversity. Delivering results.

Throughout the week, federal organizations planned learning events and activities to highlight how GBA+ supports the development of effective programs and policies for Canadians. Public servants participated in panel discussions, attended presentations and took the GBA+ online course. In addition, over 160 federal public servants danced in the streets of downtown Ottawa as part of Status of Women Canada’s Flash Mob Challenge!
