ALL WOMEN Project

PRUDE Inc.'s goal with this project is to provide women of all ages, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and disabilities a venue to share their voices and their personal experiences of obstacles.

Program's Mission

PRUDE Inc. proposes to use the power of storytelling as the venue through which women can share their personal experiences and stories of barriers they face in their communities that impact their socio-economic prosperity.

Storytelling helps to illuminate the past, present, and future. It lights up a pathway to inform decision makers of where policy changes are needed, in order to create a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse society.

Based on these findings, a multidisciplinary committee will disseminate an action plan and formulate recommendations to advance the social and economic prosperity of women and girls in the greater Saint John area. PRUDE Inc. will collaborate with municipalities to implement the recommendations.

We will visit different communities and invite women to participate in this project.

Harnessing The Power Of Storytelling

The stories gathered from women on their experiences with systemic barriers will go into a report to a committee. The committee meets monthly and it goes through every story to identify what specific barriers blocked each woman’s advancement.

From there, they will make a list of recommendations on how the Greater Saint John municipalities and communities can do better to prevent the same story from happening again in the future.

​These recommendations will form the backbone of the committee’s action plan, which will focus on removing the systemic barriers that hinder the social and economic prosperity of women in the Greater Saint John area.

Our Two-Year Impact

These stories will be the foundation to formulate a set of recommendations for the municipalities of Saint John, Quispamsis, Rothesay, and Grand Bay-Westfield. PRUDE Inc. will collaborate with these municipalities to implement these recommendations.

Testimonials

The first barrier I faced in New Brunswick was the health system. I used to live in another province, where I got my Medicare in a few days. But here, just to submit my application I went three times to the office of Service New Brunswick and convinced the employers about my case. I find this health system in NB very bureaucratic.

PRUDE, for me, has been what everyone expects from Canada. The lovely and warm side of Canadian life… Thanks for being the light in my darkest days.
