In the past decade our work has moved from educating and engaging women on the economic influences at work in their lives through the development of the Women & Economy website and Banging the Door Down video, to delivering daylong workshops on government budgets and educating governments and the general public on women's priorities, to working with women over many months giving them the skills and strategies they need in order to promote changes in their own lives and in their communities.
Our dynamic, participatory, creative and fun workshops engage women through the use of games, role plays, discussions, and case studies. We provide participants with opportunities to learn from each other, find the patterns in women's common experiences, and draw strength from the work women are doing around the world. The success of the gender budget workshops built connections with a diverse group of rural and urban Manitoba women.
Our Changemakers program offers rural and urban Manitoba women tangible skill-building in organizational development, public speaking, and facilitation. Graduates of the program have gone on to work in their communities through offering workshops to other women, forming community organizations, and/or participating in the formation of campaigns or coalitions.
Participants in our Pathmakers program are rural Manitoba women who build on their existing leadership skills, grow their networks, and take on practical projects with the support of peer mentoring and a structure within which to work.
