Purpose: This project seeks to enhance the leadership skills of 30 young official language minority women, aged 18 to 30, from rural areas of Quebec, ultimately increasing their participation in the social, economic, and democratic life of Canada. This will be achieved through the development of a mentoring relationship, the placement of each woman in a leadership development traineeship, and participation in nine leadership development skill-building workshops. This project will culminate in a video-conference forum for all participants through which they may synthesize their skills and knowledge, network, and enhance their identity and self-esteem. In addition to creating measurable change in the 30 young women, this project will educate participating organizations and businesses about the value of leadership, the contributions women can make, and the ways in which communities can respond to the need for leadership development in women.
