Community Leadership Program

The Combining Our Strength™ Community Leadership Program is offered to multi-generations representative of the diverse range of potential women leaders living in communities throughout BC who can demonstrate initiative and a willingness to participate actively.

The goal of the Community Leadership Program is to encourage women to take their seat at the table and affect change in their own spheres of influence throughout BC. The Community Leadership Program is a 10 session, project-based program made up of workshops such as:

  • Community Leadership
  • Knowing Yourself and Others
  • Effective Communication
  • Leading Others
  • Critical Issues for Women Leaders
  • Resume Writing
  • Interview Skills
  • Building Effective Teams
  • What is important to me?

Who we help

Women keen on realizing their leadership potential. Leadership can be demonstrated at home, in volunteer work, during recreation, and at school. Leadership is not only found in the workplace. The program is unique in that we recognize that the needs of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women in smaller communities can be significantly different than those of women in major city centres. To meet their needs, we have created the program to be both culturally relevant and sensitive.
