Help us take action to advance social justice and equality for all women.



CRIAW-ICREF’s committees work on a variety of tasks that are crucial to the strategic long-term goals of the organization. Committees meet once a month and Committee Chairs report on Committee activities and recommendations to CRIAW-ICREF’s Board. Committees are composed of Board members, staff and members and are a great way to get involved in our work.
