Member education is an important part of the work Unifor does. Earlier this month, women Unifor members gathered at our Family Education Centre in Port Elgin for five women-specific courses, including Women, Power and Political Action.
“Unifor members are so eager to build their capacity as activists and leaders,” remarked Julie White, Director of the Women’s Department. “And if we are going to successfully protect our jobs and build more just communities for all, we need strong, empowered, skilled leaders.”
Over the course of the week, women members learned about lobbying elected officials, public speaking and creative action. In addition to building important skills, members were also able to connect with each other.
