Integrating a Gender Lens in HR Policies and Practices

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly one-third of all Canadian adults were providing unpaid care to a family member or friend, with women spending 3 times as many hours doing unpaid care and domestic work. Now more than ever, it is important to recognize the importance of strong human resources policies and practices that incorporate a gender lens as COVID-19 continues to disrupt work-life balances.

This webinar recording provides a primer on HR/GE policies and the impact of COVID-19, then delves into concrete solutions and tools for staff, managers and HR departments that highlight the benefits of strong internal HR/GE policies.
