Women's Conference Application Now Available
Jan 07, 2020
From Thursday, April 23
to Saturday, April 25, 2020 the MGEU will be holding its Women’s Conference in Winnipeg,
Manitoba. The conference – Empowered Women Empower
Women – aims to connect, empower and elevate discourse amongst attendees. Discussions
and workshops will focus on challenges
and obstacles facing female leaders, understanding cyber stalking and bullying,
and exploring the gender dynamics of emotional labour.
This Conference is an excellent first point of contact for female members who have shown some interest in their Union but haven’t quite known how to get more involved. It provides an opportunity to learn more about the Union and each other, and explore opportunities to get involved in improving their work lives, their Union, and their communities.
As always, all MGEU women are encouraged to apply to attend. The MGEU Women’s Conference uses an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and welcomes trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified to apply.
Read the Application Brochure for more details.
Registration deadline for applications is Monday, January 27, 2020.
Completing the application form is not a guarantee of admission to this conference. Space is limited and preference is given to new applicants. The MGEU Women’s Committee thanks everyone in advance for their interest. Only those selected will be contacted to complete the registration process.
