Jenny Flagler-George, PhD is an Associate Director, Strategic Initiatives at the University of Waterloo, and formerly the Senior Manager, Research Equity in the Office of Research. In the Office of Research, Jenny specialized in embedding equity, diversity and inclusion across the research enterprise, including providing direct support to faculty applying to tri-agency funding opportunities. Jenny has a PhD in sociology from the University of Waterloo.

Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) is an analytical approach that offers the needed tools for ensuring that principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion are applied in the research design, including methods, data analysis, interpretation of results, and knowledge mobilization or translation. GBA+ can support researchers in any discipline to examine how, and at what stage of the research, identify factors such as sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, age, ability, and intersections between these factors. This presentation provides practical recommendations for how health sciences researchers can use a GBA+ analysis to strengthen the research design by asking clear and concise questions. It will also provide tangible examples of how to include GBA+ rationale in grant applications once the analysis is complete.
