Thanks for your comment, Jane. As you may know, Canada was recently elected to join the Open Government Partnership Steering Committee, and will officially become a member of the Steering Committee in fall 2017. Canada will leverage its new leadership role to support peer learning and exchange on key priorities, including the empowerment of women and girls, and strengthening diversity and inclusivity in the OGP.
Additionally, we are in the process of developing our engagement strategy for the next Action Plan and one of the areas we’re striving to improve upon is gender equality, by working with gender-based organizations on the promotion of the consultations.
Finally, as we engage with Canadians later this year to help us to shape Canada's next Action Plan, we will be looking for ideas for possible commitments and would highly encourage you to get involved and share your ideas to ensure that commitments are inclusive of and address women specifically.
