Feminist Visions of the Future of Women’s Work

September 23 @ 12:00 - 13:00 CDT

A Systemic Exploration Of The Past, Present And Future Of Women At Work In Canada

We are still far from achieving gender equality at work, as our modern workplace is designed by men for men. Women’s economic participation and prosperity face systemic barriers and are further threatened by the digitization and automation that drive the future of work. Yet, the impacts and discussions around the future of work are often gender-blind. In this Brown Bag Lunch, we will use a systemic lens to explore gender equality in the workplace and use strategic foresight to re-envision inclusive and equitable futures.

Stephanie Kwan is a foresight strategist with a background in finance and accounting. After ten years of finance, she pivoted her career to pursue a Master of Design in Strategic Foresight and Innovation. She currently practices foresight at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), where she explores trends, anticipates changes in the external environment, and future-proof strategies for the CRA.

Brown Bag Lunches are Impact Hub Ottawa’s weekly lunch & learns led by Hubbers, for members and non-members alike. Topics vary each week, but you’re always sure to learn something new!
