Rural Pathways for Visible Minority Newcomer Women

Rural Pathways for Visible Minority Newcomer Women in Grey Bruce is an 18 month pilot project to learn how we can support visible minority newcomer women (VMNW) with their pathways to employment. This survey is the first phase of broad consultation with employers, that will be followed by interviews, workshops, and partnerships with workplaces in our region. 

Your responses will help us develop training workshops and tools for employers and workplaces.  Your responses are confidential and important.

If you have any questions about this survey, need help translating this survey, or would like to be interviewed or participate in a future workshop, please contact Olga Gura at pathways@unitedwaybg.com

Thank you so much for participating in this survey!
