Feminist Leadership Summit 2011
In February 2011, NAWL hosted a Feminist Leadership Summit in Ottawa that was attended by twenty-one young feminists from across Canada. All of the Summit participants, representing a diverse range of identities, had demonstrated leadership skills and equality rights work experience in their communities.
The goal of the summit was to connect young leaders from local associations of women and the law (or organizations working on equality rights issues) with one another, as well as to provide participants with some concrete leadership and advocacy skills.
Participants attended a series of workshops and discussions on feminist advocacy and law reform that drew on the expertise of some of Canada’s leading feminist lawyers, academics, communications experts and activists.
The Summit worked to build the capacity of local women's and equality rights caucuses as well as to develop new potential leaders for NAWL.
