Purpose: This 36-month project will seek to improve the economic security of unemployed and precariously-employed racialized immigrant women in the public sector in the Greater Toronto Area. The organization will conduct a gender-based analysis of systemic barriers and policy gaps preventing access to better jobs for racialized women with input from networks of immigrant-serving agencies and other non-profit organizations. Three committees will steer the project and each create an engagement plan with regards to policy development, service innovation, and community action. The committees will increase the engagement of decision-makers and strengthen sector leaders’ collaboration. An annual Gender Equity Matters Symposium will also lead to the development of gender-based indicators and best practices to ensure racialized women’s experiences and needs are reflected in project initiatives and tools.
