The Capacity Building Project aims to increase the YSWC’s capacity in the areas of:

  • Strategic Planning

  • Governance

  • Human Resource Management Tools

  • Financial Health

  • Community Partnerships


This will be done through a Gender-Based Analysis+ (GBA+) informed lens and be participatory in nature to create longstanding, relevant and appropriate frameworks to guide our work now and into the future. With a focus on relationships, knowledge mobilization and organizational integrity, we strengthen our capacity to work effectively and meaningfully with partners to collectively impact gender equity in the Yukon.


  • The YSWC Board & Executive Director continually co-create medium-term strategic plans to identify organizational goals and define how we will achieve them.

  • The YSWC Board continually builds their governance capacity through training, tools and resources

  • The YSWC Board & ED revise and develop new Policies and Procedures

  • The YSWC Board & ED work together to implement sound financial practices and maintain YSWC's financial health

  • The YSWC leverages specialized knowledge by collaborating with community partners at the local, territorial and national levels
