The year has so-far been filled with several events and opportunities! Coming up from July 13-17 at the University of Victoria, there will be a Summer Institute for Union Women. The theme is "Putting Women in their Places...in our Union, in Politics and in our Communities".
We are pleased to be able to support PSAC-BC Young Women who are interested in taking part in this skills and leadership-building learning opportunity. If you are interested in being considered, please send a 300-word paragraph on how you would use the what you've learned at this event in your Union, in Politics or in your Community to Monica Urrutia by June 10, 2011. This could be as simple as you are wanting to run for a Local Executive position, to you are considering getting involved in politics at the municipal, provincial or federal levels, or you want to advance issues at the community level, such as Childcare or Retirement Security for All.
If you are interested in applying for PSAC's support to attend this event, please do not register directly with the organizers. Please send your expression of interest in to us first. If accepted, then we will submit your registration to the organizers on your behalf.
