HEU’s three-day women’s conference – Women to the front: taking our space, building our power – will be held September 16 (1:00 p.m.) to September 18 (ends at noon) at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond.
Women’s work, both paid and unpaid, is critical to the functioning of our society. Yet, our work is too often undervalued, and our voices are not listened to. By working together to build women’s collective power, we can fight to put women at the front of the agenda in our union, in our communities, and the halls of political power.
During the conference, we’ll discuss the ways that women take leadership in our union and in our communities. We will also strategize about how to build women’s participation in the social, economic and political world around us, and learn more about the strengths and barriers facing women in all our diversity.
Applications must be completed and returned to the HEU Provincial Office by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24, 2019.
