Equality Report Card Launch on June 24, 2015

PEI Status of Women Equality Report Card Launch

On Wednesday, June 24, the PEI Status of Women Council members and staff launched our 2015 Equality Report Card. The Report Card is one of our most major projects, released every two years to assess the provincial government’s work towards women’s equality and diversity goals. The 2015 grade for government was a “C” – unchanged from 2013.

The report brings together information provided by government officials, evaluation and analysis from Council members, and feedback from community organizations. We are so proud of the many voices and perspectives it includes. We were honoured to have representatives from all the contributing sectors at yesterday’s launch at the Cornwall Town Hall. There was a great spirit of celebration!

Click this link to review the report and the news release.

History

The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women Equality Report Card for PEI is a process to assess our Province’s progress towards women’s equality goals. The PEI Status of Women’s goal is to work collaboratively with government to help the Province to achieve high grades by responding to priority recommendations from women.

In 2007, the Advisory Council on the Status of Women introduced the report card process for following up on its past recommendations to government on key issues that affect the lives of Prince Edward Island girls, women, and their families. Council released its first Equality for PEI Report Card on June 17, 2008. The second ever Equality Report Card was released in June 2009. In June 2010, the Advisory Council published an Interim Trends Report to less formally indicate trends at the mid-way point between formal assessments. Full Equality Report Cards were published in June 2011 and in June 2013.
