Women and gender-expansive people have rich histories of resilience in the face of oppression and exclusion.

We’ve seen these communities — particularly women of colour, queer, trans, and non-binary people, disabled women, and Indigenous women — have to pull from wells of resilience throughout the pandemic.

What if they didn’t have to? How might policymakers and social purpose organizations build economic systems that work for women and gender-expansive people?

The Future of Good Women’s Economic Resilience summit, sponsored by Scotiabank, will convene changemakers and speakers working to advance gender equity and economic empowerment from across Canada and around the world. We’ll dive into feminist philanthropy, feminist movements, feminist public policy, entrepreneurship, care, leadership, and a whole lot more.

Hosted by Future of Good’s editorial fellow on women’s economic resilience, Sherlyn Assam, we’ll ask tough questions about whether the social purpose sector offers decent work for its 80 percent women workforce. We’ll ask, too, about whether social policy development in this country is feminist and inclusive; how teams and organizations are driving gender equity; how funders might reckon with the trauma many women experience with money; and more. 

We’ll also spotlight solutions led by women and non-binary people — from feminist activists on the frontlines of movements globally to women’s traditions of community care to the entrepreneurs, investors, and philanthropists building a better future for their communities every day.
