CAWI promotes a democratic practice that engages in the electoral process and moves beyond it. It is a political approach that promotes a deep sense of belonging and ability to make a difference for the women of our community. CAWI's areas of work focus on Equity and Inclusion, Making Votes Count and Facilitation for Change. Equity and Inclusion partners with the City of Ottawa and 5 other municipalities to consider equity and inclusion to ensure a city for everyone. Read more about the City of Ottawa's Best Practices. Next, Making Votes Count is a project that partners with the Coalition of Community Health and Resource Centres, as well as Action Forums and Deputations. Facilitation for Change provides capacity training for women from diverse communities to have a voice in City decision-making.
