Colleen Sym is our quest speaker.
My name is Colleen. I work for the Manitoba Association of Women’s Shelters, known as MAWS. I am employed through a grant from Women and Gender Equality Canada as the project manager on a project called Transforming Together.
MAWS itself is a provincial association for the family violence shelters in Manitoba. We support the shelters in their work providing safe haven and programming from women, those identifying as women and their children escaping violent relationships. The Transforming Together project is about building the governance skills of the local boards of directors for the shelters, building the capacity of MAWS and strengthening services for those accessing shelter services.
We would very much welcome the opportunity to share more about our work and explore how the PSAC woman’s committee and MAWS could become allies in stopping gender based violence and its impact on gender inequality.
