Leading Women Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program

Recognizing the achievements and leadership of female leaders in Ontario

As the first female Member of Provincial Parliament for Davenport, I am excited to introduce for the first time in Davenport the Leading Women Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Program, a unique opportunity for women and girls to be recognized by the Government of Ontario in their communities.
 
This award was implemented to recognize the women and girls who have taken a leadership role and made significant contributions, such as:

  • Breaking down barriers and encouraging women and girls to get involved in non-traditional careers
  • Championing or actively promoting issues such as equality, diversity, healthy equal relationships
  • Preventing violence against women and girls
  • Reducing racism and discrimination
  • Encouraging women and girls to participate in any part of public service
  • Acting as a positive role model by mentoring, coaching, leading events or organizations
  • Providing a positive example to women and girls in their communities

During International Women’s week in March, I will be awarding winners with the Leading Women/Leading Girls Building Communities Recognition Certificates. I look forward to recognizing well deserving women and girls in Davenport for many years to come.
 
Do you know someone deserving of this award? I encourage you to nominate up to 4 individuals from your organization (2 women and 2 girls).

Nominations are now open and the deadline is on January 22nd, 2016. Please follow the link for application forms.
