Postsecondary institutions celebrate International Women’s Day

Postsecondary institutions across Canada are celebrating International Women’s Day. In preparation for the day, Mount Allison University held a Gender Equity webinar and Red River College Polytechnic hosted a public panel at which professionals spoke on women’s contributions to the mental health field. At York University, the YSpace’s new Food & Beverage Accelerator program will leverage the expertise of women entrepreneurs to support underrepresented groups in the consumer-packaged goods and agri-food sector, thanks to $476K from the Government of Canada. The University of Saskatchewan highlighted the contributions that women have made to its history and community, while Camosun College marked the day by profiling Director of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Tehmina Khwaja’s work dismantling barriers.
