About the Speaker:
 

Fauzia Mazhar has 20 years of experience in the local social profit sector, much of it in leadership and management. She holds a Masters of Social Work degree with specialization in Community, Policy, Planning, Organizations (CPPO), and a post graduate certificate in Leadership and Management from Wilfrid Laurier University.

In 2010, Fauzia joined hands with a handful of women in KW to start the modest initiative to empower Muslim women to be leaders and change makers, able to address stereotypes and misconceptions about Muslim women through community outreach and bridge-building, which is now known as Coalition of Muslim Women of KW or CMW.

Fauzia is community builder and an engaged citizen, passionately bringing people and groups together to build a welcoming, inclusive and safe community. She is also an optimist who likes a good laugh.

A Zoom link will be emailed to participants prior to the event.

This presentation is presented in conjunction with Schneider Haus's newest exhibit:

UN/COVERINGS - Mennonite & Muslim Women’s Heads and Hearts

On exhibit until October 8, 2022.
