FREE WEBINAR: Decent Work for Women Working in Ontario’s Nonprofit Sector


We're very pleased to be working with the Ontario Nonprofit Network to present a free webinar exploring their important work on decent work for women in the nonprofit sector.


The Ontario nonprofit sector’s distinctive characteristics, trends, challenges, and opportunities significantly impact its labour force, one that consists of 80% women workers, many of whom are racialized and immigrants. Given the critical intersections between what we know about the labour market, the nonprofit sector, and women, the Ontario Nonprofit Network has documented the barriers that women working in the nonprofit sector face and we are now developing and implementing solutions to break down these barriers at the organizational, network, and systemic levels.

In this webinar, ONN’s decent work for women Project Lead Pamela Uppal will share key findings from their recent reports, the 10 solutions ONN is working on - with particular emphasis on new maternity top-ups and compensation tools, and ways for women workers and nonprofit employers to join the decent work for women movement.

  • What can be done at the organizational, network, and systemic levels?
  • How can we build a stronger decent work for women movement?

What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!
