Our approach

Equitas applies an human rights-based approach, gender-based analysis and an intersectional approach to deliver human rights education activities that address systemic discrimination, exclusion and other forms of human rights violations.

Our approach

At Equitas, we recognize that gender equality and respect for human rights are bound together, and work to address the multiple ways that marginalized identities can intersect with gender identity to disproportionately affect women and girls.

We work closely with our partners from Canada and around the world by providing knowledge, skills and tools to support the empowerment of groups that are subject to discrimination, exclusion and other forms of human rights violations, particularly women, children and youth. Through our human rights education programs, we build local leadership capacity of these groups and contribute towards a more enabling environment for these local leaders to connect with other like-minded leaders to take action locally and nationally to advance human rights.
