CFUW - a strong voice for women and education
The Program theme this year is “Looking Back; Moving Forward”. Through presentations and discussions, we will celebrate our history and accomplishments and focus on even greater things to come.
The information provided in September’s discussion (Prouds & Sorries) has been given to a working group to use for ensuring we have a goal statement that is current and relevant. Hopefully, there will be a draft statement ready to present to the membership at our November general meeting.
Our October speakers - Dr. Julia Denholm and Laura Smit - presented us with a glimpse of some of the challenges women on the Coast face as they attempt to further their education and find employment that provides a living wage. Read The Progress Plan - Community Plan for Women’s Economic Well-Being Along the Sunshine Coast of BC, for an increased understanding of vital issues for all of us. Please also remember to complete the PlaceSpeak survey Dr. Denholm mentioned.
November 27th is going to be a busy meeting. Our Program will include a presentation by Devon Kennedy of Sunshine Coast Community Services Society. You will be amazed to discover all of the services that this Society provides to our community. In addition, one of our members will also be speaking. Heidy Kux-Kardos of the Success by 6 Program will bring us information about the program she administers.
