The WPSN-C website and social media accounts have a new look!

After two years, the network is as strong as ever and gearing up for some new projects, but before we take those on, we wanted to revitalize the network’s online presence and improve our communication with network members and the public.

As part of our redesign, we’ve updated our Facebook and Twitter accounts with more information about the WPSN-C and its members. We’ve also restructured the website so that it’s easier to navigate and find information on WPSN-C members, campaigns and events. Additionally, we’ve created a new logo featuring a dove and olive branch to represent peace, and chosen a new colour scheme of blue and yellow which was inspired by the United Nations, the organization whose resolutions on women, peace and security the network supports.

Over the next several weeks we’ll also be conducting a membership drive to expand the network; supporting the launch of the Canadian Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict; responding to the Government of Canada’s 2011/12 and 2012/13 reports on the National Action Plan for the Implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolutions on Women, Peace and Security (NAP); and hosting a one-day workshop on May 2 on civil society’s role with regard to the NAP (for more information, please see the Upcoming Events page).

Overall, it will be a busy spring for the network. We hope you like our new look, and look forward to working with you throughout the year!

Best regards,

Amber Minnings
WPSN-C Intern
