Women's Empowerment and Active Citizenship

Kitchen Table Talks

If you have come to Nova Scotia, you will notice that we often do a lot of our talking and decision-making informally at our kitchen tables. The Antigonish Movement was organized around them and Moses Coady and Jimmy Tomkins, our founders, were known for them. We wanted to revive these discussions around the burning issues that are keeping us up at night about ABCD approaches. These talks are provocative, candid, and critical discussion circles on how to deepen our practice and thinking on ABCD.

ENGAGE! is a five-year initiative co-designed by Coady Institute and five partner organizations:

  • Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) in India;
  • Organization for Women in Self Employment (WISE) in Ethiopia;
  • Gender Training Institute (GTI) of the Tanzania Gender Networking Programme (TGNP);
  • Christian Commission for Development (CCDB) in Bangladesh; and
  • Centre Haïtien du Leadership et de l’Excellence (CLE) in Haiti.
