The aim of the Building Aboriginal Women’s Leadership (BAWL) Program is to assist in Building Capacity and supporting Aboriginal women as leaders in their communities. Many Aboriginal communities are working hard to heal from the effects of historical and current conditions of oppression & racism. ONWA believes that this can be accomplished by Aboriginal women changing the presence and practices of our women, by encouraging networking and by women taking a more active role in understanding how governments and leadership function.
The BAWL program focuses on the issues, challenges, and inequities that Aboriginal women face as we strive to fulfill the responsibilities of our jobs, meet the needs of our family members, and answer the demands of the community. The program also addresses the issue of under representation of women in positions of influence, on tribal and band councils, management boards and boards of directors of Aboriginal organizations.
