Abstract

This project was a collaboration between the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) and the Research Shop. The purpose of this research was to understand the opportunities and barriers related to leadership local women* face who are early to mid-stage career professionals and leaders in their communities. Over 20 participants were interviewed through an online platform. The main results were presented in a webinar on International Women's Day 2021.

This project builds upon previous research with CFUW that explored the opportunities and barriers local women face when running for elected positions.

*Our definition of women encompasses cisgender women, transgender women, genderqueer women, and two-spirit, non-binary, and gender non-conforming people who are woman-aligned.
