Dear Members:

The OPSEU/SEFPO’s Provincial Women’s Committee (PWC) invites applications for the 2021 Women’s Conference. This year’s conference will be held virtually on Monday, October 18 and Tuesday, October 19, 2021.

The theme, “I AM MORE THAN,” will build on our 2019 conference and will highlight and connect the various ways in which we are “more than” what is visible.

This Conference will focus on the strength and resilience of women. Participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the many ways in which women contribute in all aspects of our society. We will showcase skills, strengths, attributes, and talents that are not always recognized, celebrated or encouraged.

Our goal is to present a thought-provoking roster of speakers, panel discussions, artists and performers who will give their insights and knowledge.

Do not miss this opportunity to network, learn, share experiences and have some fun.

Please submit your application no later than midnight, September 24, 2021. You can apply directly by logging onto OPSEU’s member portal at: https://members.opseu.org/. Only online applications will be accepted for this event. We will be applying the criteria as set out in questions 1-9 of the application form. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

For any additional requirements, please contact the Equity Unit directly at provincialwomensconference@opseu.org

We look forward to meeting you at the conference!

In solidarity,

OPSEU/SEFPO Provincial Women’s Committee (PWC)
