Economic Justice: Navigating Pathways to Women's Economic Safety Through Inclusive Policy:

Focuses on the often-overlooked issue of economic abuse and injustice, with a specific emphasis on critical policy gaps for women's economic safety. Navigate through the barriers and best practices to transform policy. Dissect the roles of policymakers, financial institutions and stakeholders, and consumer lawyers in fostering resilience and forging a path toward a future free from economic injustice. Collectively strive to raise awareness and champion policies that shield individuals, especially women, from the insidious impact of economic abuse, ultimately paving the way for a universal right to financial security.

Women Rising from Poverty from a ‘Northern Perspective’ :

Women across Canada’s north face unique socio-economic challenges compared to their southern
counterparts, including limited employment opportunities, social services, insufficient internet access, and mobility hurdles. Furthermore, the impacts of climate change and colonialism remain evident. However, targeted programs exist that address these systemic issues, empowering women in the North to break through the ice and reach their potential.

Using Development Cooperation Work to Improve Access, Retention, and Educational
Opportunities :

Simameni means ‘Stand Up’ in Swahili and is the name of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation’s project aimed at improving access, retention, and educational opportunities for secondary school-aged girls in schools in Uganda. The project addresses two key drivers of poverty: lack of access to education and gender inequality. Heidi Yetman recently visited Uganda and will give a first-hand account of how Simameni works to raise girls and their families out of poverty through education.
Realisation that (even in well developed) or underdeveloped countries women ( and girls) need education and work to support them selves wich also gives them confidence to leave poverty behind and be able to fend for them selves.

Collaberation with other NGO’s bust also investigate what the situation is in your own country.
