Women's Room

Coast Mountain College has commissioned an art piece to honour the resiliency and achievement of the class of 2020 and recognize the unique circumstances under which this year’s graduates have persevered during the ongoing pandemic. 

Kari Morgan K’alaajex’s submission of a fireweed and frog design called Resilience was selected because of its representation of transformation, resiliency and achievement. Each of this year’s 2020 graduates will receive a printed copy of the art piece in recognition of their achievement.

As a matrilineal society, the Nisg̱a’a Nation honours its women and their roles in our lives as friends, mothers, grandmothers, nieces, sisters and daughters. We also honour them as President, Secretary-Treasurer, Councillors, professionals in law, health, education, finance, human resources, science, trades, humanities and the arts.

The International Women's Day 2019 campaign theme of #BalanceforBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. From grassroots activism to global action, we are entering a period of history where the world expects balance. It’s important to notice its absence and celebrate its presence. Advances have been made, but there is still a long way to go.

As the world celebrates International Women's Day, activity is underway acknowledging women's achievements and challenging bias. For more information about International Women’s Day visit www.internationalwomensday.com

Happy International Women’s Day!

As a matrilineal society, the Nisg̱a’a Nation honours its women and their role in our lives as mothers, grandmothers, sisters, daughters, nieces and friends.  We also honour them as President, Secretary-Treasurer, Councillors, professionals in law, health, education, finance, human resources, science, trades, the arts, fashion. 

“Each of you are leaders. You are all beautiful, you have talent, and you inspire all who surround you.” Said President Eva Clayton in her greeting to women today.

A point of interest, of the 53 employees within the Directorate of Programs & Services at Nisg̱a’a Lisims Government, 52 are women!  These wonderful women make their daily contribution to the Nisg̱a’a Nation in Ayuuḵhl Nisg̱a’a, Citizenship, Nisg̱a’a Child & Family Services, Access to Justice and social development.

Of course, there is always room for improvement…

Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. There's a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
