Do you want to respond to and design policy structures for public health advocacy for BIPOC women, non-binary, and gender diverse persons?
As Youth Policy Advocates from the Ontario Council for International Cooperation’s (OCIC) Youth Policy Maker’s Hub (YPH), we are working to create a space in which youth can address Canadian acute healthcare and public health challenges faced by BIPOC women, non-binary and gender diverse individuals. Our focus is on challenges arising from or exacerbated by COVID-19.
To tackle pressing issues, we will be hosting a Policy Lab for youth (18 – 35 years) to gather young and diverse thinkers who can enrich mainstream policy discussions with innovative ideas and a key youth perspective. This Policy Lab has been designed for active participation and discussion on four focal areas which includes: (1) rise in mental health issues; (2) racism in healthcare and healthcare delivery; (3) technology and disaggregated data in healthcare; and (4) sexual health and reproductive justice.

About the Youth Policy-Makers Hub
The Youth Policy-Makers Hub (YPH) is a signature initiative of OCIC’s Community Engagement and Learning programs. The YPH is an multi-generational initiative that will engage diverse youth from across Ontario in international cooperation policy processes in support of Gender Equality, Canada’s Feminist International Assistance Policy (FIAP) action areas, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Global problems like gender inequality and climate change affect people of all ages everywhere. These complex problems require holistic inter-generational approaches, diverse mindsets, multi-disciplinary methods and multi-sectoral dialogue. OCIC recognizes the wealth of knowledge, experience and leadership that youth leaders bring to the international cooperation sector in Ontario and beyond. We want to help enable the active participation of youth at local, national and international policy-making tables to inform decisions that concern their lives, future and the planet.
