First Nations Authentic Leadership for Women Masterclass

The First Nations Authentic Leadership for Women workshop is designed to empower both First Nations identified women and non-First Nations women by harnessing the strengths and wisdom of First Nations culture to enhance their leadership.

Through collective storytelling, reflection and shared vulnerability, this two day workshop will explore how you live your truth and stand in your power and resilience. It will explore how you nurture and build deeper connections to self, culture, and community.

Creating and taking space to nurture and invest in ourselves as human ‘beings’ is vital to our sustainability and our capacity to empower, enable and serve others. This is a space to take time for you, to check in with yourself and really explore and reconnect with who you are and align this to your season, your Dreaming (purpose) and values.
