Is Open Government Really Inclusive? Raising Awareness of Challenges in Accessing Information and Data for First Nations and Indigenous Women in Four Countries

10:30 - 11:50
Room 208, Shaw Centre

The session aims to provide an opportunity for OGP stakeholders to identify, from country examples, challenges to address gaps that exclude first nations and indigenous women in accessing public information and data, in order to find potential comprehensive solutions with an inter-sectional approach. Expected outcomes: Participants will be able to identify differences and similarities across countries to understand exclusion of first nations and indigenous women in accessing public information and data. Panel speakers will provide inputs on the need to promote changes in the conception of inclusion in OGP to address existing gaps between first nations and indigenous women and access to public information. Follow-up actions: Build a statement addressed to each country recommending the inclusion of concrete open government actions to reduce the existing gaps between indigenous women and first nations and public information and data in the next OGP National Action Plans.
