Expanding Our Roots
2006 Women of Resource Communities
on the success of the 2005 Women of Resource Communities Conference, when
85 women from resource communities around British Columbia came
together to share ideas and to hear from a panel of prominent women
in oil and gas, mining, forestry, agriculture, aquaculture, communications
and government, the 2006 Conference is destined
to become an even bigger event.
The 2006 Women of Resource Communities Conference is
an opportunity to:
- Rethink how both the recreational and industrial stakeholders
of British Columbia can work together for a sustainable future;
- Rediscover the pride of working in BC's resource sectors and
reclaim a greater leadership role for women who live and work
in resource communities;
- Recreate how we can have balanced resource communities where
all stakeholders can live, work and play.
Delegates can expect to hear from leaders in both industry and
government, as well as community leaders from several First Nations.
The two day conference will be held at the beautiful Hill's Health
Ranch in 100 Mile House and will provide delegates with an opportunity
to experience the hospitality of the Cariboo region.
Organized by First Dollar Alliance, the 2006 Women
of Resource Communities Conference will be of interest to
women working directly in the resource industries, women working
in the many services that depend on our primary industries, as
well as women living and / or working in resource-based communities,
First Nation communities, coastal BC, the Interior, rural communities
and urban centres.
