This webinar will be the first of two webinars on our collaborative work to define, develop curriculum, pilot, and evaluate gender-transformative approaches to health promotion within girls’ programming. This first webinar will focus on promising practices in, and examples of, gender transformative girls’ programming. In the second webinar (to be held in the fall) we will share a new guide on this approach which has been piloted in six communities in Nova Scotia, BC, Ontario and Quebec.

We welcome all individuals and groups who are interested in girls’ group programming and girls health and wellness overall.

The Girls Action Foundation

At Girls Action we are committed to building a movement of active, engaged individuals and organizations across Canada. The Girls Action Foundation’s approach is based on 5 overarching principles: 1. popular education, 2. integrated feminist analysis, 3. gender specific spaces, 4. critical asset based, and 5. social action and change.

With the Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health, we have partnered on several projects about integrating health promotion approaches within girls’ empowerment group programming that is grounded in these five principles.

This webinar has been made possible by financial contribution from the Public Health Agency of Canada.  The views expressed within will not necessarily represent the view of PHAC.
