Partner With Us

Let’s move the needle together on gender equity in organizations. And let’s make gender equity truly intersectional.

How We Create Equitable Partnerships

Since 2021, we’ve been working as a team to redefine our partnership approach, one that moves from “business-as-usual” to what we have termed an equitable partnership. Creating an “equitable partnership” invites you to extend your organization’s focus on equity into how you work with AHF’s team of Indigenous, Black and racialized women. We co-design our partnerships with you so that we each share the same vision and work together to achieve it.

"Business-as-Usual"

Performative and Short-Term
We put your logo on a webpage or social media post. You know how many people saw it — but that doesn’t build trust or meaningful long term impact.
Numbers-Focused
Page views, follower demographics, and statistics are important. But when it’s the sole focus, we don’t feel seen or valued.

Leads to Diversity Only
A focus on representation and inclusive hiring is an important step, but it’s not the only step. Representation alone is not enough.

Power Over Us
Viewing our partnership as doing us a favour, negotiating terms stacked in your favour, or devaluing our work are not equitable – they perpetuate the very barriers we are trying to solve together.

Equitable Partners

Meaningful and Long-Term
As equal partners, we work to meet our mutual goals with a sense of shared purpose – a long term relationship that’s meaningful and intentional.
Trust-Focused
Trust is a key metric. The more trust we build between your team, our team, your brand and our community, the stronger the impact we can make together.
Leads to Transformational Change
When you listen and learn with us and our community, we can create lasting change together in service of intersectional gender equity.
Power With Us
When you work with us in a respectful and reciprocal way, we can share power together – this means you share resources and time, pay us our value, and work alongside us to advocate for our mission.

Impact of Our Partnership

We see partnerships as a reciprocal, long term relationship, where we work as equals towards our shared vision. Transformational change starts with centering and listening to our voices and expertise, as an organization run by Indigenous, Black and racialized women.
