and Local Governance (Department of Geography and Environmental Studies,
Carleton University)

Dr. Fran Klodawsky (Department of Geography and Environmental Studies,

September 2013 to work on research related to a SSHRC-funded Partnership
Development Grant titled "Intersectionality in Practice: Feminist Theory
and Local Govenance". The Co-investigators for this project are Dr. Janet
Siltanen (Sociology, Carleton) and Dr. Caroline Andrew (Centre on
Governance, University of Ottawa). The partners are The City of Ottawa, a
community based organization called City for All Women Initiative, and the
Federation of Canadian Municipalities. This project is an in-depth case
study of how the City of Ottawa has been addressing issues of diversity
with regard to both employees and other Ottawa residents since about 2000.
A particular focus of this study is the City of Ottawa's implementation of
the Equity and Inclusion Lens, a staff training and education tool
developed by the City of Ottawa in partnership with the City for All Women

The research position includes up to 4-5 semesters of funding to work on
the project in addition to the student's own related research topic. This
support will also enable opportunities for joint publications and
conference presentations.

related field. Previous experience is welcome but not required.
