Visiting Social Activist program defines social justice and equity programs
broadly to include activism in such areas as housing, employment, income
support, food security, education, violence, child care, health care, and
employer benefits like paid sick leave and retirement income. The program
supports activists whose work addresses gender equity issues that affect the
lives of women and/or girls.
Visiting Social Activist
activists must develop a product proposal relevant to their work. Product
examples include a report, plan of action, communication strategy, training
tool or other item. The product will later be published on CEW’s website.
Nominees must outline a plan for working on the product during their four-week
stay and describe how insights gained from the visit will be integrated into
the activist’s future work. Ideally, nominees should be able to suggest ways to
disseminate their product in order to advance the work of other activists.
Product ideas with the potential to have a regional or national impact and/or
to be replicable by other activists are encouraged. Download the VSA application form here.
