The Leadership for Systemic Change project is currently completing the planning phases. Here are some of the activities in progress.
IWSO has completed another primary deliverable for the project. The plan highlights how IWSO will implement each leadership-building activity.
The Outreach Strategy has been finalized. This plan outlines the project’s promotional activities for participants and organizations. Based on the strategy, IWSO promoted the project through its Launch (on International Women’s Day), the Welcoming Ottawa Week (WOW) event, its social media channels, newspaper advertisements and key informant interviews. Over forty immigrant and racialized women have signed up for the project. IWSO has also gathered over ten collaborations with multiple organizations to train, mentor and place participants.
