TRAINING WOMEN FOR SOCIAL CHANGE

LAKE ERIE TRAINING 
SUNDAY, JUNE 8, 1997
MARSHLAND MUSEUM AND NATURE CENTRE
ROCKWOOD, MICHIGAN (SOUTH OF DETROIT)
********************************************************
     Training Purpose:

     There are many women leaders already working in grassroots
organizations around the Great Lakes. There are many more who are
potential leaders, but they lack the specific skills or the support to feel
comfortable in that role. 

     It is the goal of the Network to support those who are out there now
with too much to do and too little help. To do this we must train and
empower a new group of women leaders who can go back to their
communities and work for change.

     About The Great Lakes Women's Leadership Network:

The inspiration to create a Great Lakes Women's Network came out of a
series of meetings with women activists. The goal of the network is to
provide skill straining as well as support for women leaders, or potentialleaders, around the basin. 

In July of 1996, the Kellogg Foundation funded an 18 month project to
make this dream a reality. The Environmental Association for Great Lakes
Education (EAGLE), founded in 1994 by two grassroots women activists
will coordinate this project. 

The Great Lakes Women's Leadership Network Project has 3 components: 

1) Fifteen women advisory board members (U.S. and Canadian) chosen
from around the basin, met in March of 1997 and were trained as
facilitators and to formulate a leadership structure. 

2) These women will then return to their own lakes to hold leadership
training workshops. 

3) Two additional regional workshops will be held on each lake. 

EAGLE will also compile a Great Lakes Women's Leadership Directory
which will list women with skills and issue expertise, as well as those
available to do future leadership trainings.
    
The Lake Erie Training is being organized by Advisory Board Members: 

          Janine Ralph - Port Colborne, ON 905-835-6621
          Valerie Cromie - Niagara Falls, ON 905-374-1079
          Laura Rose Day - Ann Arbor, MI 313-769-3351
          Monica Wroblewski, Canton, MI

         EAGLE is a non-profit organization coordinating the Great Lakes
Women's Leadership Network. For more information contact EAGLE at
