“Activism for Inclusive Policy Making! …because it’s 2016”


Women for Policy Dialogue (W4PD) is multi-partisan initiative of Savanna Skills , an Alberta registered non-profit.  It is a participatory, inclusive and accountable initiative intended to leverage women’s insights for improved policy development and implementation.  This initiative seek to adopt an inclusive feminist approach to giving voice to the interests and concerns of women by complementary use of research and dialogue.

Consequently, our agenda will be informed by the emerging interests of participants.  As such expected to focus on key concerns, contemporary developments and anticipated future trends at national, provincial and municipal levels.


Our purpose is to advance inclusive feminist perspective in policy development and implementation drawing on research and dialogue geared to support good governance, sound economic management and the interests of marginalized groups in society.


Our aims are to:

  2. Harness the strengths and talents of each participant.
  3. Improve policy development and implementation, resulting in policies that addresses priority societal needs inclusively.
