Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) and Diversity in National Security: Can We Ever Be "Bias-Free"?

13:40 - 15:00
Room 215, Shaw Centre

Making room for inclusivity and diversity within national security decision-making, this panel will feature Canadian leaders, experts, and champions of the Government of Canada's tool, Gender-Based Analysis Plus. The panel will explore how an intersectional lens can be applied to government initiatives in the ever evolving environment of Canada's national security, and how GBA+ is being used to communicate how the Government of Canada is safeguarding rights and freedoms and reducing stigmatization by opening doors to communities.
