Join the Circle of Champions for Empowering Newcomer Women

French Translation

The Empowering Visible Minority Newcomer Women Circle of Champions initiative is designed to match newcomer, visible minority women with professionals and corporate Champions who will help them to overcome obstacles and to secure employment. Delivered in partnership with Immigrant Women Services Ottawa, the program will expand networking opportunities for this particularly marginalized group, and develop their skills for successful labour market integration.

Program participants benefit from targeted interventions to support their career development. These interventions include: needs assessment, career planning, portfolio building workshops; job matching; professional branding; targeted recruitment events; retention support and self-leadership workshops to motivate and inspire women to reach their goals.
