As the national voice of Inuit women in Canada, Pauktuutit advocates for equality and social change for Inuit women and gender-diverse Inuit. Part of that advocacy focuses on the need for new and existing policies, programs and services to reflect the unique needs, voice, and social experiences of Inuit women, girls, and gender-diverse Inuit.
In order to facilitate this work, we are introducing our Inuit-specific Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) Framework. With regard for the distinctive qualities of Inuit Qaujimajatuqangit beliefs and principles, Pauktuutit’s framework will make sure that new and existing policies, programs and services reflect the unique needs and social experiences of Inuit women, girls, and gender-diverse Inuit.
It is a strengths-based tool ensuring that an Inuit-specific GBA+ lens is applied consistently and in consultation with Pauktuutit. It is based on the understanding that Inuit women, gender-diverse people and their communities have existing strengths, experience, and capabilities that make them adaptable and vibrant.
The Inuit-specific GBA+ Framework is a living document that is intended to evolve as we use it, assess it and validate it.
