Presents a revised version of the Women's Agenda on Training - a guide by and for women who are working to realize quality training and education for all women. The guide supports, enhances and encourages women's participation in the development and implementation on new training and labour market policies. It assists women who are trainers, employed or unemployed, who are making life changes to prepare for the changing Canadian and global labour market. It also educates and informs women about identifying and meeting training needs of women. This document includes a brief outline of the Canadian Labour Force Development Board and the National Women's Reference Group on Labour Market Issues. It discusses the nine major 'change drivers' forcing changes in our society, the changing face of training, and recounts women's stories of the challenges and barriers they have faced. This document highlights programs that have embodied the National Women's Reference Group principles and that have taken up the challenge to move with changes in the workplace. It speaks to the need for cooperative approaches to training and identifies some partnership arrangements developed to address training at the community level. The guide concludes with a resources section.
