Mission Statement:
The Great Lakes Women's Leadership Network is a broadbased, multicultural,
intergenerational organization formed to mentor and support Great Lake's
Women. Through leadership skills training, education and networking we seek
to foster personal empowerment and social change.

The Great Lakes Women's Leadership Network project is sponsored by the
Environmental Association for Great Lakes Education and funded by the
Kellogg Foundation and the Minnesota Women's Fund.

This ongoing project was originally started at a meeting of Great Lakes
Women in Lake Geneva in 1994. This meeting was followed by a women's
gathering at the 1995 International Joint Commission meeting in Duluth. 

As part of this project a Women's Caucus is scheduled for the 1997 IJC
meeting, scheduled to be held in Niagara Falls, Ontario between October
31-November 2nd. 

The GLWLN project seeks to provide skills training as well as support for
women leaders and potential leaders around the Great Lakes basin.

GLWLN has three components: a fifteen member women advisory board made up
of women from the United States and Canada chosen from around the Great
Lakes Basin who attended a training in Chicago, Il, in March, 1997 to
formulated a leadership network structure; these women will hold trainings
on their own lakes between May - October (contact us at
lakes@cp.duluth.mn.us for the schedule of trainings); we will also compile
a directory of women with skills and issues expertise from around the Great
Lakes which will be available for free by December, 1997.

The first training was held in Duluth, MN on May 3rd with over 60 women
attending.  Below is a schedule of additional trainings as there will be a
total of 15 trainings, in both Canada and the United States over the next
several months. Trainings include: public speaking, working with media,
networking, yoga/self massage, leadership skills, and more.

We are also looking for volunteers to help organize regional trainings
if you are interested in helping please contact us at EAGLE.
