Silvia Vidal of Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association (CIWA) will speak about what her organization is doing to develop the skills of women who are new to Canada.
Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association (CIWA) was established in 1982 as a non-profit organization to address the needs and concerns of immigrant and refugee women, youth, children and families.
CIWA has developed a reputation for its innovative and unique approaches to providing essential services to immigrant and refugee women. The demand for our services increases with each passing year as Calgary receives the fourth largest intake of newcomers to Canada.
We will also be formally launching the 1 + 1 = the New Power of BPW. We encourage our members to bring their +1 to this event. As well, we are encouraging members to sponsor a CIWA woman so she can be a BPW + 1 and gain networking skills and contacts.
