    Apply by Dec. 14th: Aboriginal Women and Leadership Workshop funding 

    Funding and opportunities for Women in SportIt’s short notice on this one Funds Fans but two days is enough to get this application in!

    CAAWS is seeking communities interested in hosting a Building On Our Strengths: Aboriginal Women and Leadership workshop between January and March 31, 2013.

    Facilitator costs (travel, honorarium) will be paid by CAAWS. Other costs (e.g. facilities, refreshments) will be reimbursed by CAAWS up to $250. Hosting organizations are responsible for the following workshop logistics: promotion, registration, facility booking, and organizing light refreshments.  Deadline: December 14th, 2012Applications can be e-mailed.

    Backgrounder:  Aboriginal women have diverse knowledge, experience, perspectives and connections that can enhance program planning, decision-making and organizational governance. Further, Aboriginal women are important role models in their community, particularly for girls and young women. However, Aboriginal women are often under-represented in leadership roles. To help address this gap, CAAWS, in collaboration with the Aboriginal Sport Circle and a working group of female Aboriginal leaders from across Canada, developed the Building On Our Strengths – Aboriginal Women and Leadership workshop to provide a personal and professional development opportunity to increase the skill level and confidence of Aboriginal women to make a difference in their community.
