“To ensure a just recovery and a more inclusive future, it is more pressing than ever to invest in women, girls, Two-Spirit people and gender-diverse people. We’re pleased to be taking part in this funding initiative, while also looking at systems-level change through our investment and institutional policies. We know the journey will be a long one, but we’re committed to it.”
