Thanks to Marcella Pedersen, Susana Deranger, Evening Star Andreas, Terri Sleeva and Amber Fletcher for their thoughtful and inspiring contributions to the presentations, to Saskatchewan Status of Women Office for the grant, and to all of the enthusiastic participants! Some great sharing and ideas about  how women can be influential and inspiring. We all left feeling re-energized.
