The WPSN-C is delighted to co-host an all-day workshop on May 2, 2014, exploring how Canadian civil society organizations can use National Action Plans on women, peace and security.

The workshop is co-hosted by Carleton University’s Gender Equality Measurement (GEM) initiative with support from the University of Ottawa’s School of International Development and Global Studies, and will take place at Carleton University in Ottawa.

We strongly encourage network members to attend, as well as other NGOs, development organizations, researchers, students, and peace organizations. Government officials are welcome; however the final session of the day will be open to NGOs and civil society only.

The workshop is free and will include lunch and light snacks.

To book your participation (and so that we can plan catering), please email Alexandra Dodge at AlexandraDodge@cmail.carleton.ca by April 25.

More information on the workshop’s objectives, themes and issues, and background documents are available below.
