Canada’s Gender Equality Week is September 18th to 24th this year. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions of women and to highlight the progress made in gender equality in Canada. Importantly, this week also serves the purpose of addressing the issues and gaps that persist in our country, and for us, in our entertainment industry.
Gender equality means that everyone should be treated equally regardless of their gender identity. Advancing gender equality benefits women, men, and gender non-binary individuals, and has a positive impact on the atmosphere and collegiality on set and in society.
