Dr. Deborah Stienstra About Making a Living and Life

On April 9, 2024, Dr. Deborah Stienstra attended the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) Speaker Series to present her research to IWH scientists and staff. This work relayed the experiences of women with disabilities to understand why it’s essential to move past focusing on jobs as the experience of work and health for women with disabilities and instead move towards a livelihoods approach. The results she shared were from two Live Work Well Research Centre projects: Disability & Livelihoods in Canada and the Engendering Disability-Inclusive Development (EDID) partnership.
