The Women in Public Policy initiative started as a research project in Nova Scotia involving 126 women involved in trying to make public policy changes. The second phase of WIPP was a national workshop involving over 100 community-based women, researchers and government employees working toward the same end. They are now seeking to evaluate how their efforts to affect public policy (1) are being assisted by Steps Toward a Credible and Inclusive Public Policy Process, and (2) are affecting our organizations.
