Update on Saskatchewan survey
Professor Amber Fletcher of the University of Regina is leading the Saskatchewan exercise which tests a method that combines a province-wide survey and participatory group methods. The exercise explores the most pressing policy priorities for women across the province of Saskatchewan. The study proceeds in several stages:
Beginning March 22, 2017, an invitation was issued to residents of Saskatchewan to participate in a survey to share their thoughts on issues affecting women today. In total, 459 people responded to the open-ended survey.
During the spring and over the summer 2017, the research team is analyzing the survey results using NVivo and SPSS software.
In fall 2017, in-person and virtual discussion groups will be held to reflect on the problems and issues identified by the survey participants.
In collaboration with the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of Women (CRIAW) — a national women’s organizations and a partner on the Engendering Public Engagement, Democratizing Public Space project — the research team is producing a set of background information briefs on the three issues most commonly raised by survey participants.
Saskatchewan residents interested in participating in the fall 2017 discussion groups may contact Professor Amber Fletcher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-306-585-4183.
