Gender Equality Week 2022
September 18 – 24 is Gender Equality Week in Canada. As a world leader in health for women and health equity, Women’s College Hospital is developing ground-breaking innovations that address issues related to gender and sex and advocate for health equity – because we know that a healthy society requires a level playing field where everyone has access to timely, high quality, efficient, and compassionate care.
The revolutionary work being done by our physicians and staff continues to break down barriers in healthcare and beyond, such as our national centre dedicated to integrated sex, gender, and reproductive health services – a first in Canada and a major milestone that will mark a new era for sex and gender in healthcare.
And, in an effort to provide equal opportunity and access, Women’s College Hospital Foundation has created the Emily Stowe Society – a group of philanthropists committed to breaking down barriers to careers in the health sciences for women.
Read more about this, and the innovative work that Women’s College Hospital has been doing – thanks to our donor community in our Fall 2022 issue of Women’s Now.
