“One such priority is to complete a Nunavut Family Violence Strategy by the end of this calendar year, and it is a goal to which the minister of Health and Social Services and I are fully committed,” Aariak said in the news release.
We are proud to note that over the course of the year, more women are taking the initiative to become more involved in their communities and local governments. We have seen more women moving into high level political positions and positions of authority and we could not be more proud of the role we play in helping women become empowered to find their way in life. We believe in the power of leadership – whether you are an elder that teaches young girls to sew, a student who helps out with the school’s breakfast program, or the Premier of Nunavut leading Canada’s newest territory – you can make a difference!
This summit was for Nunavut women interested in learning about leadership. The summit featured keynote speakers, workshops and other events, to showcase the talents of Nunavummiut women. For more information about this event, please contact the Qulliit office at (867) 979-6690.
