For too long, women have been having conversations in isolation from each other about the current context that women and women’s organizations find themselves in.
Regina (17 Dec. 2012) - Interested in women’s rights, in connecting with individuals and organizations who have been working on women’s issues recently and through the decades? Want to spend weekend learning, having fun, and moving a women’s agenda forward in Saskatchewan? If you answered yes to any of those statements, reserve January 18 (evening) and January 19, 2013 for a weekend workshop for women activists.
This Forum, taking place at Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon, is being organized by a coalition of women and organizations who have realized that for too long, women have been having conversations in isolation from each other about the current context that women and women’s organizations find themselves in. This weekend will be an opportunity to collectively develop how women in the province can move forward on important issues.
The program, which will be centered on women’s stories and respectful of intergenerational, intercultural and diverse experiences, is being finalized.To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org and the program and registration will be sent to you.
In the meantime, please save the date! If you want to be part of the planning, volunteer at the forum in any number of capacities, or have other ideas, contact the organizers.
Registration is $50 per person. (If you are in a situation where you would only be able to attend with a reduced rate, or conversely, if you are able and willing to donate money to assist in covering a portion of registration for others, please let the organizers know.)
