April 10

Recently the Nelson Chapter of the Canadian Federation of University Women celebrated their 45th anniversary of being a vibrant organization in Nelson. The Nelson CFUW chapter is very active in many areas of life supporting women in Nelson. The CFUW Fellowship and Awards program supports women’s access to higher education. It is a way in which they carry out their educational mandate. The CFUW membership promotes equality for women and girls. They support quality education and life long learning. They advocate locally, provincially, nationally and globally. CFUW encourages dialogue between its members and governments at all levels as a way to effect positive change. They speak of “Our right to speak and the responsibility to act.” So it was with pride and joy that they celebrated their 45th anniversary of being active in Nelson.
