>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.
>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 Toronto, 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
