L'hiver dernier, nous avons eu le plaisir d'animer deux formations entièrement en français avec des femmes du MOFIF et ils ont pris toute cette expérience et l'ont transformée en carburant pour propulser leurs projets.
What a year! A little over a year ago, when we formally launched the Institute for Change Leaders, we didn’t realize using the word change would tempt the gods! Lives disrupted, livelihoods destroyed, families torn apart - the year has certainly given us enough change to keep us on our toes for years.
These changes have also highlighted the inequality and inequity that we have quietly accepted in our societies. They made us face the systemic racial bias that has been stitched into the fabric of our society. They unmasked the risks healthcare workers take to keep us safe and alive, despite the trying circumstances and government failings. They made us confront how much we depend on early childhood educators who take care of our children - and how little we take care of their economic, health, and well-being.
It has to change.
In our 2020 Annual Report, we invite you to read about the people we have trained, and more importantly, the changes they have been able to advocate for, the fights they have been able to gear up for, and the victories - big and small - that they have won.
Joining the executive is a great way to continue developing your organizing and leadership skills.
August 22, 2021 will mark the tenth anniversary of NDP leader Jack Layton’s untimely death. Jack believed change is possible when we all come together - so that’s exactly what we’re doing.
