Grace Hartman Women and Gender Rights Conference 2023

Calling all women and gender diverse members!

The 2023 Grace Hartman Women and Gender Rights Conference celebrates the legacy of Canada’s first woman to be elected as national leader of a major union. Grace helped build CUPE as a fighting union, and opened the door to solidarity and inclusion of diverse voices in the work of our union.

The 2023 Conference aims to carry on that tradition as we explore our needs and realities in the workplace and embrace gender diversity and inclusion in our work today. Prepare to learn, act and organize in this packed day of events.
