Bilingual External Evaluation Consultant for Project on Women's Leadership in the Community Sector
Project Description
Within this 24-month project (March 2011-April 2013), the Coalition for Pay Equity of New Brunswick will develop innovative mentorship models and supports. These will be implemented in order to increase women's full involvement as leaders and decision-makers in community-based organizations. The mentorships models and supports will pinpoint and find solutions to the obstacles women face when assuming leadership of these organisations. A key component will be for the Coalition to prepare women in leadership positions in community-based organizations to serve as mentors to those with little or no experience of civic engagement, and wherever possible, to involve them as leaders in their own organizations. Results will be shared with other groups and target populations across Canada. This project is targeted primarily towards community organizations operating in New-Brunswick.
