On July 27, 2018, CCPA Senior Researcher Kate McInturff passed away. The CCPA mourns the devastating loss of our colleague and friend. Kate will be remembered as a feminist trailblazer in public policy and gender-based research.
Our hearts go out to her family. Kate’s colleagues, collaborators, and countless organizations across Canada are stronger because of her research, advocacy, friendship and conviction.
To honour Kate’s legacy and carry on the important work of fighting gender-based inequalities, the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives is establishing a fellowship in her name as part of the Making Women Count initiative. Those wishing to support this fellowship can click here to make a contribution.
Kate's final blog post, a reflection on a lifetime of advocacy, can be read on Behind the Numbers.
