On March 17, fourteen Métis women leaders including members of the Women’s Secretariat of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) and Women’s representatives from several MNO Community Councils, gathered in Toronto to participate in an MNO Women’s Leadership Training Workshop. The training was very interactive with the women covering such topics as “the qualities of genuine leadership”; “the key action necessary when speaking to influence others”; and, “how to have the greatest impact through face-to-face communications”. The training will help the women, who all play key leadership roles within the MNO, its regions and community councils, build on their already considerable leadership abilities and will benefit the entire Métis Nation.
