Call for proposals International projects

May 3, 2023 | News Articles

The Women’s International Solidarity Program of the Steelworkers Humanity Fund is launching a pilot open call for proposals outside Canada for international development projects and worker-led initiatives that support women in accessing and being successful in employment occupations and industry labour sectors impacted by gender bias.

Projects must be led and implemented by non-profit organizations or associations located in low and middle-income countries. This initiative seeks to expand the international partners of the Humanity Fund to help advance strategic women and labour issues.

This call for proposals seeks to:

  • Increase women’s successful labour integration in industries that continue to experience gendered occupational segregation;
  • Elevate women’s leadership in labour movements that advocate for access and equity in non-traditional jobs;
  • Help women secure decent work in career fields or sectors of employment where women’s participation is underrepresented.

Funded project activities may include technical skills building, equity and inclusion efforts, improvements on occupational health and safety, job mentoring, wrap-around supports, labour leadership and local organizing spaces, among others.

This call for proposals will promote the active participation and integration of women in underrepresented industries in the Global South as a strategy for poverty alleviation and economic justice.
