Women, Two Spirit, and gender-diverse people are at the forefront of Canada’s pandemic response, and will need to be centred in economic recovery efforts going forward, says Maya Roy.

Roy is a seasoned policy maker and non-profit leader with over 20 years of experience in a range of sectors including child care, employment and workforce development, health care, immigration and settlement, and the women’s sector. Her lecture will highlight policy recommendations of the Feminist Economic Recovery Plan for Canada and is part of the Envision community speaker series, which offers thought-provoking discussion about what’s next in the post-COVID future.

The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the Microsoft Teams teleconferencing platform. A question-and-answer period will follow Roy’s formal presentation. Register to attend.
