IGH Listening Tour

Share your views: Participate in the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health's Listening Tour

The Institute of Gender and Health (IGH) wants to hear from you!

Under the leadership of our new Scientific Director, Dr. Angela Kaida, IGH is embarking on a Listening Tour and national planning process to co-create a new strategic plan to guide our work together.

Beginning in spring 2023, the IGH team is travelling to major cities across Canada to meet with researchers, including trainees and early career researchers, community organizations and community partners, healthcare professionals and many others, with options for virtual participation.

We are also holding virtual focus groups with the Sex and Gender Science Chairs, the Sex and Gender Science Champions Virtual Community of Practice, IGH Trainee Network, and recipients of the Indigenous Gender and Wellness Team Grants, 2S/LGBTQI+ Support and Catalyst Grants, and other research teams.

We want to know:

  • How can we best foster research excellence regarding the influence of sex and gender on health?
  • What is your vision for achieving health equity for women and girls, boys and men, and gender-diverse people?
  • What Sex and Gender Science priorities do you think should be centered in our next strategic plan?
