We offer a range of public education materials on gender equality, health and violence prevention. We also provide funding support to groups and initiatives that enhance gender equality and security. We work closely with a network of gender equality seeking groups and non-government organizations and agencies throughout Yukon for ensuring that equality concerns are brought forward.
