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.
