Welcome to the site of Daina Green, Labour Consultant. The site gives you information about my work as a labour consultant, translator and interpreter, and anti-discrimination specialist. You can also check out some of the interesting links provided here.
recognized internationally as a Gender Specialist by the
UNDP Roster of Experts in Gender Equality and
Women's Empowerment in Public Administration. The
UNDP is the United Nations Development Programme.
I’ve been involved as an advisor to unions, governments, and non-profit organizations since 1980. In independent practice since 1990, I have been hired jointly by organizations AND bargaining agents to assist them with initiatives like pay equity, anti-discrimination programs and employment equity. I consult across Canada and throughout the Americas on anti-discrimination program and policy development, including pay equity and employment equity. I also provide Spanish and Portuguese language translation services, especially to non-profits.
I have placed some useful resources for pay equity on a separate page. Click here to access some of these documents and websites.
Trained as a social science researcher, I hold a Master’s degree in Human Communication Disorders from McGill University and a teaching certificate in English as a Second Language. I work in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese, frequently working as a simultaneous or consecutive interpreter (Spanish-English-Spanish, French-Spanish) and translator for written material.
I was the last Chair of the Alliance for Employment Equity (Ontario) before it wound up its work some years ago. It might be time to get Employment Equity back on the agenda in Ontario! I have also been an active member of the Equal Pay Coalition since the 1980s.
