5th Canadian HIV/AIDS Skills Building Symposium
Embracing Diversity, Challenging Inequalities
We are currently seeking skills building workshop and poster proposals for the 5th Canadian HIV/AIDS Skills Building Symposium. This is your chance to share your community-based expertise in HIV/AIDS work. We are looking for proposals that provide introductory, intermediate or advanced learning opportunities and fall into one of the following learning tracks:
Human Rights, Law, Policy and Advocacy
Organizational and Community Development
Workshops and posters for Skills 2005 are designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas, strategies and models of program delivery at the community level and to build the knowledge and abilities of staff and volunteers of ASOs, educators, health care, researchers and other professionals and organizations serving people with HIV/AIDS and those at risk.
Do you have an idea for a workshop or poster that fits into one of the eight learning tracks, but focuses on issues related to youth and HIV/AIDS? Make sure you submit a proposal to the 2005 Youth Institute!
The Youth Institute is the youth-driven (29 years and under) part of the Skills Building Symposium. Fill out a Workshop and Poster Proposal Form and make sure you check off that your proposal is focused on youth issues or is led by youth to be considered part of the 2005 Youth Institute.
Submit a proposal online (web address provided below). The deadline for proposal submissions is May 6, 2005 at 5pm EST. For more information on our proposal criteria, please read our Workshop and Poster Submission Guidelines.
