Eighteen Indigenous women leaders from across Canada have graduated from the award-winning Indigenous Women in Community Leadership Enhanced Mentorship Program. Offered since 2011, the program supports First Nations, Métis, and Inuit women who are committed to creating social change in their organizations, communities, and Nations.

After completing an intensive on-campus residency that includes the design of a community initiative, participants bring their initiatives to life in their communities with the support of mentors, Elders, and Coady staff.

This year’s participants also had the opportunity to participate in the 2019 IWCL Alumni Gathering where approximately 100 Indigenous women leaders came together to forge connections, collaborate, and amplify their impact.

Congratulations to all of the graduates, and welcome to the Coady alumni network!
