Leadership gatherings for women to be held in Norman Wells, Fort Smith and Yellowknife

Women of all ages are invited to participate in upcoming leadership gatherings, sponsored by the Status of Women Council of the Northwest Territories.

Women are to discuss leadership, barriers and solutions to women participating in political decision-making processes, and how to sustain the change we’ve seen across our territory.

The goal, according to the council, is to connect and empower women.

Three local leaders are to speak at the Yellowknife gathering: Kam Lake MLA Caitlin Cleveland, Lena Black, YKDFN Councillor, and Yellowknife Mayor Rebecca Alty.

It’s being held on March 4 at 6:30 pm at the Explorer Hotel.

Prior to that gathering, similar events are being held in Norman Wells and Fort Smith.

Both of those events are being held the evening of February 20, next Thursday.
