GGSCF Attends SAFAR Women’s Leadership Conference

21 March 2012

SAFAR_1On March 18th, GGSCF Volunteers set up a booth at Louise Arbour Secondary School where SAFAR hosted Sharing Our Journeys – A Young Women’s Leadership Conference. The conference consisted of a panel of women from different careers. It was to inspire leadership in all young women in Peel Region secondary schools and to connect their creative inspiration to appropriate career paths by providing networking opportunities through Sikh women that are leaders within the community.

The youth were defiantly engaged and eager to ask questions. Passion and contribution are the keys to a successful and meaningful career. The GGSCF was glad it could take part in the event as it was similar to the end-of-the-year Building Bridges seminar that happens every December to unleash and grow the leadership skills within all of us. SAFAR is The Sikh Feminist Research Institute which is an organization that helps to conduct and promote feminist research with a vision to promote gender equality.
