The Women Leaders – Who Can Participate?

For this year’s program, the Canadian Women’s Foundation is welcoming applications from emerging and mid-career female leaders with a minimum of 3 years of management experience working in women’s economic development organizations.  We are looking for candidates who want to step into more senior leadership positions within the women’s charitable economic development sector.

Specifically, we are interested in women who want to participate in women-centered leadership training to manage change, build the CED sector, support partnership development and become a force for change for women in Canada.

Eligible candidates must be able to demonstrate emerging leadership through their existing employment, community involvement or volunteer work. Candidates must also have a high level of proficiency in English, both written and spoken.

We are looking to create a culturally and geographically diverse cohort of womenwhorepresent diverse communities, opinions and interests.  Consideration will be given to women from diverse backgrounds including Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis, Inuit), Black women and women of colour, rural or northern women, immigrant women, and women with disabilities.
