Introducing Equal Press #FeatureFriday – a space to highlight individuals or organizations doing noteworthy work in the areas of media, violence prevention, or gender equality… and what better place to start than with our phenomenal advisory committee! We are incredibly fortunate to be able to draw upon the expertise and knowledge of a diverse group of folks who have generously volunteered their time to participate in our project, and are excited to spotlight their contributions to Equal Press.
Our first #FeatureFriday, Misha Dhillon of EVA BC, has been a huge asset to our work. Read more about her below!
