LEADING CHANGE

YW Calgary is committed to supporting women’s economic empowerment in our city. We want to make Calgary a place where women succeed economically and can prosper – to empower women so that she has what she needs to make the choices she wants.

When women are financially empowered, they are better equipped to exercise control over their lives, improve financial security for themselves and their families, and participate more equitably in the workforce.

Our Women’s Economic Prosperity programs provide women with the tools, knowledge and support to overcome economic disadvantages.

OUR PROGRAMS

YW Calgary Community Advisory Group for Safe Housing

The YW Calgary Women’s Economic Prosperity team is recruiting individuals who are passionate about healthy relationships and safe housing. This includes those working in the housing sector, non-profits and those with lived experience who want to participate in a community initiative focused on domestic violence prevention and strategies for safe living in Calgary.

Participants will join the advisory group to discuss challenges and supports needed in addressing domestic violence in their work. Participation in this group is voluntary. Insights and resources provided by the advisory group will inform YW Calgary program initiatives and encourage partnerships between non- and for-profit housing agencies as well as provide opportunities for networking and collaboration.

If you are interested, please contact Lauren and Trinity at WeProsper@ywcalgary.caor 403-232-1580.
