Women in leadership positions in PSAC BC have worked hard to create a COVID-19 and PSAC BC Women survey, which is designed to capture and document the current challenges facing women in our union during the pandemic. The information gathered by this survey will be used to support members and capture women’s perspectives. All those who participate in the survey will be entered in a draw to have $200 donated to a women’s rights organization in their name in their geographic area.
