Aboriginal Women's Leadership Circle - A deeper understanding of Aboriginal women and Indigenous women, and with a recognition of their immense knowledge and leadership as inspiration for a better world.

Aboriginal women have diverse knowledge, experience, perspectives and connections that can enhance program planning, decision-making and organizational governance. Further, Aboriginal women are important role models in their community, particularly for girls and young women. However, Aboriginal women are often under-represented in leadership roles.

To help address this gap, CAAWS, in collaboration with the Aboriginal Sport Circle and a working group of female Aboriginal leaders from across Canada, developed the Building On Our Strengths – Aboriginal Women and Leadership workshop to provide a personal and professional development opportunity to increase the skill level and confidence of Aboriginal women to make a difference in their community.

The project is delivered with a financial contribution from Sport Canada.
