Dalhousie University - Inspiring Minds

 

Partnership

Connecting is key


Partnership building was key to the work of the Atlantic Centre of Excellence for Women's Health (ACEWH). ACEWH played a unique role in researching, building dialogue, providing analysis, strengthening policy, and promoting women's health within our local community, regionally, nationally, and globally. 

  • Our work supported Dalhousie University's engagement in the community and specifically with marginalized and vulnerable populations that might not have otherwise engaged with the university.
  • We regularly worked with policy makers and translated research knowledge to support the formulation of gender-aware policies.
  • Internationally, our long-term partnerships, with key researchers in the global south, extended Dalhousie's presence abroad by providing exciting opportunities for knowledge exchange.
