Gender Equity Task Force

January 21, 2019 marked the first meeting of PSAC’s Gender Equity Task Force. The Task Force, chaired by NEVP Sharon DeSousa, originated from a meeting of the National Human Rights Committee (NHRC) in December 2017. The NHRC women’s working group put forward a recommendation to strike a task force charged with examining equity representation within the union on all leadership bodies and develop proposals to increase women’s participation throughout PSAC, and in all areas of union activity.

PSAC seeks to build a union that is representative of its membership at all levels and plans to shift culture, programs and practices to ensure your union is more inclusive for all women.
PSAC's National Women’s Conference will be held April 3 to 5 at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa.
PSAC members in good standing that identify as women are invited to take part in this survey.
