Equay-wuk (Women's Group) is sponsoring:
"Nishnawbe Women in Leadership 2005"
December 6-8, 2005 in Sioux Lookout, ON
The main goal of this project is to promote women's participation in First Nation elections.
Equay-wuk (Women's Group) will be hosting a "Nishnawbe Women in Leadership" workshop for women in remote aboriginal communities in northwestern Ontario. The workshop will be carried out using the resource, "Nishnawbe Women in Leadership - A Handbook for Aboriginal Women Running in First Nation Elections."
Potential delegates will fulfill the following criteria:
Women who want to attend this workshop are asked to write a Letter of Interest which tells us...
Deadline for submission of letters is: Tuesday, November 22, 2005 @ 4:00pm. Letters should be approximately 200 words or no more than 2 pages. All letters will remain confidential.
Due to limited resources, Equay-wuk is only able to cover the cost of one delegate per community - those served by Equay-wuk. Equay-wuk will cover delegates' workshop expenses such as travel, accommodations, meals, etc.
Successful delegates will be selected and notified by the Workshop Planning Committee. Women not selected are still welcome to attend, but at their own expense. Expenses include travel, accommodations, meals, and incidentals.
