As a part of this project, a Gathering of Indigenous Women Leaders is being held on March 2, 2020 at the MCFN Community Centre.  At this event a panel of Indigenous Women Leaders will share their stories of achievement and resilience in their life journeys and careers.  Following the panel, participants will be engaged in a reflective exercise to share their own stories of resilience and strength-based ways of coping with life/health challenges.

  1.  To participate on the panel as an Indigenous Woman Leader.  Nominees from MCFN will be considered amongst those from the other project partners and beyond and,
  2. To attend as a MCFN Indigenous female community member as a participant,
