Women's Education and Outreach 2023

Unifor Women

The Unifor Education Department is hosting regional 3-Day Women Activists courses culminating in a spirited 1-Day Strengthening Women’s Committees Outreach hosted by the Unifor Women’s Department.

The Unifor Women Activists program provides women with the tools to organize, hold ground on the gains we have made, and push forward to build a movement for women’s economic and social equality. The course covers a wide range of issues, such as women’s work, understanding oppression, harassment and violence, women’s history, and women in unions. Participants develop skills to make real change in the union, the workplace, and the community around equality issues.

The exciting new 1-Day Strengthening Women’s Committees Outreach will provide sisters with the tools to mobilize on equality issues in the workplace and the community. A Local Union Women’s Committee works towards bringing attention to and supporting campaigns that focus on improving the issues that affect women’s lives and supporting our members. This day will be an opportunity to network and grow the sisterhood in your region.


To register for any of the 3-Day Women's Activists courses, please email Michelle St-Louis (@email) the full names of all participants, along with their email address, local number and phone number. 

All locals are welcome to register their members on a first-come/first-served basis. Participants must attend all three days of the courses.
