Diversity within Women’s Organizations: A Conversation with Relais-Femmes


[youtube id=”emAGvNLetlI”]

Nancy Guberman and Nicole Caron of Relais-Femmes talk about their project “Intégration et maintien en emploi de femmes d’origines diverses dans les groupes de femmes.”  The project looked at the attitudes and practices that are present within women’s groups in Montreal that pose barriers to the inclusion of women of diverse origins, and offered an evaluation process for these groups to expand their recruitment and hiring practices.  They also talk about the challenges in addressing oppression in groups that consider themselves progressive, and also the different approaches to Anti-Oppression or diversity within the francophone and anglophone sectors.  You can learn more about the project here.
