Women and Leadership Training Conference - Victoria, BC.
ProMOTION Plus hosted the "Train the Trainers" conference for two new workshops in the Women and Leadership workshop series developed by CAAWS. These new workshops are Effective Networking and Creating Work Life Balance which the facilitators will be delivering around the province in the following year. The three days were a great opportunity to share stories and concerns and to network with an amazing group of women. Through the two new workshops offered, the facilitators gained tools to benefit their communities and access to an experienced network of facilitators.
Anyone from BC interested in hosting a Woman and Leadership program should contact ProMOTION Plus directly through email@example.com
