In collaboration with local women’s organizations, the organization will apply an intersectional gender-based analysis to develop recommendations on poverty reduction measures. Key stakeholders will also be engaged in identifying strategies to influence policies, practices, services and budgets in Ottawa’s municipal institutions to increase their effectiveness for women and girls. The organization and local women’s organizations will then engage with local elected officials, institutional staff and city-wide Boards, as well as potential electoral candidates, to influence change at the local level in policies, services and practices
