The Aboriginal Women's Professional Association (AWPA) was incorporated on October 6, 2003. Our vision is to see all Urban Aboriginal Women trained, employed, and self-sustaining.
The AWPA is a growing network of professional Aboriginal women who are skilled business owners, managers, program coordinators, public employees, entrepreneurs, facilitators, and students. The Association is mandated to mentor and share relevant teachings with interested Aboriginal Women of all ages, regardless of background or experience.
The Aboriginal Women’s Professional Association is inclusive of ALL Aboriginal women. We shall not divide ourselves by border, background or nation; and in the spirit of inclusion, the AWPA governing board would like to share that the word “professional” is defined as a mind-set or attitude not a destination.
