Steps Toward a Credible and Inclusive Public Policy Process

Steps Toward a Credible and Inclusive Public Policy Process (June 2000)

These Steps have been developed by combining the Women in Public Policy (WIPP) research project results ("Never Give Up: Women Making Policy Change") and the Sharing Our Strengths workshop outcomes. Both activities were coordinated by Feminists for Just and Equitable Public Policy and by Women's Centres CONNECT! and held in Nova Scotia in 1999. The research project involved 126 women associated with diverse groups from around the province. The workshop involved 113 women from three sectors: community-based equality seeking groups, government employees and politicians, and researchers involved in public policy, all from across the country. The workshop was part of the Made to Measure Symposium sponsored by the Maritime Centre of Excellence for Women's Health.
