The Institute of Gender and Health (IGH) wants to hear from you!
Under the leadership of the new Scientific Director, Dr. Angela Kaida, IGH is embarking on a Listening Tour and national planning process to co-create a new strategic plan to guide our work together.
Beginning in spring 2023, the IGH team will travel to major cities across Canada to meet with researchers, including trainees and early career researchers, community organizations, healthcare professionals and many other partners, with options for virtual participation.
IGH wants to know:
- How can we best foster research excellence regarding the influence of sex and gender on health?
- What is your vision for achieving health equity for women and girls, boys and men, and gender-diverse people?
- What Sex and Gender Science priorities do you think should be centered in our next strategic plan?
