Vancouver is hosting Women Deliver 2019 in June 2019— the world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls! In our efforts to build momentum towards the June 2019 conference, we have launched Women Deliver UBC.
Women Deliver UBC is focused on engaging and promoting gender equity in the UBC community across students, faculty, staff and various groups to center the voices and experiences of members of our UBC community for whom gender equity forms an integral part of their work.
In this effort, the Women Deliver UBC website is coordinating information about events and initiatives that advance the conversation in the lead up to June 2019. There is a small grants fund to support faculty, staff or student-led activities that engage the UBC community or the general public to organize an event, discussion or activation related to gender equality or the health, rights and wellbeing of women and girls. The next application deadline is March 15th, 2019; please visit our website for more information.

For those of us who are settlers on this land we must be actively critical of how colonial violence shapes the institutions in which we participate in and the land on which we stand. In our occupation of this land, we play a role in upholding this violence, and invite our communities to be deeply mindful of these implications.
