Saskatchewan Women’s Forum 2013: Connecting Voices for Change
Public Event • By Katelyn Joanna and Michelle Beveridge
January 18, 2013 at 6:00pm until January 19, 2013 at 5:30pm
Delta Bessborough, 601 Spadina Crescent East, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
If you are interested in women’s rights, in connecting with individuals and organizations who have been working on women’s issues recently and through the decades, and in spending a weekend learning, having fun, and moving a women’s agenda forward in our province, then:
Please set aside FRIDAY, JANUARY 18 (evening) and SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2013!
We are a coalition of women and organizations who have come together to plan a Saskatchewan Women’s Forum taking place at the Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon. For too long, we have been having conversations in isolation from each other about the current context that women and women’s organizations find themselves in. So we are creating this opportunity to collectively develop how we can move forward on the issues that we care about.
We are currently finalizing our program, which will be centered on women’s stories and respectful of intergenerational, intercultural and diverse experiences. If you are interested in attending, please respond back to us (at firstname.lastname@example.org, 306.242.4097 )) and we will ensure you receive the program and registration package by mid-December.
In the meantime, please save the date! And get in touch with us if you would like to be part of the planning, to volunteer at the forum in any number of capacities, or have other ideas for us.
Registration is $50/person. (Please let us know if you are in a situation where you would only be able to attend with a reduced rate, or conversely, if you are able and willing to donate money to assist in covering a portion of registration for others.)
