Haida Gwaii Women’s Dialogue SessionsThe Skidegate Band Council, Old Massett Village Council, and Council of the Haida Nation are excited to present the Haida Gwaii Women’s Dialogue Sessions (HGWDS)!

The purpose of the HGWDS are to strengthen the leadership of Indigenous and non-Indigenous women of all ages to create positive change that enhances the well-being of women, families, communities, and Nations. This project will take place over three separate weekends on Haida Gwaii (see dates below). These dialogue sessions include panel discussions, presentations, art performances, small group working tables, experiential decision-making activities, workshops, and open dialogue. Each session is unique, with an agenda tailored to the group(s) of women that are participating, including such experiences as panel discussions on Women in Business, working tables to address issues impacting women, knowledge-sharing activities, and much more.
