A conversation with Nevena Ivanovic from the Women’s Centre

How can we make the city more equitable for women? 

The Women’s Centre provides a safe and supportive space accessed by thousands of women in Calgary. They offer women opportunities to both receive and provide support, connect with others and build community through a variety of programs. 

Nevena Ivanovic is the Public Policy Coordinator at the Women's Centre of Calgary, where she works to bring an intersectional gender lens to policy discussions and collaborations. Nevena researches and advocates for social policies that address the unique way women are affected by, and are vulnerable to, poverty and economic insecurity. She focuses specifically on income support programs, affordable transportation and child care, as well as municipal-level work to advance gender equity.

Nevena holds two Master’s degrees, in Gender Studies and Public Policy. Over the years, Nevena has worked internationally to support and empower women in politics, build the capacity of gender equity advocates, and influence public policies so that they reflect women’s needs and experiences.
