Decent Work for Women

Decent Work for Women Working in Nonprofits

We can’t build a decent work movement without women

80% of the nonprofit sector labour force across Ontario and Canada consists of women workers, especially Black, immigrant, and Indigenous women, women with disabilities, and women from the LGBTQ2SI community, who experience unequal outcomes.

For this reason, ONN applies a gender-based intersectional lens GBA+ to its decent work movement. The GBA+ lens illuminates supports women workers particularly need in their workplaces.
