VF Inc, in collaboration with the Gender Affairs Bureau of the Ministry of Gender Affairs, will be hosting its Third Annual Phenomenal Caribbean Women Symposium on January 28th, 2012 under the theme “What you conceive you can achieve because God has the power to deliver what He promises”.

The objectives of the symposium are to celebrate the successes of caribbean women, allow caribbean women to tell their stories of success, triumph over adversity, challenges, pain, joy and blessings, inspire women to determine, re-discover and achieve their life’s purpose.

The seminar also aims to demonstrate that achieving one’s life purpose is possible, develop a personal action plan towards achieving one life’s purpose, reaffirm the role of women as Healers of the Nation and establish a network of support and opportunities for women

Speakers will include Mrs. Suzanne King of Barbados, Mrs. Ignatia Pascal, FCIB Dominica’s Unsung Hero 2010, Mrs. Nathalie Murphy, Mrs. Ophelia Olivacee-Marie, Dominica’s Lady of Song, Reverend Cherie Booker of Trinidad & Tobago and Ambassador Rosalyn Hazelle of St. Kitts & Nevis.

Organizers say that presenters will be telling their experiences of hope, joy, faith, love and triumph over adversity, pain and challenges.

They say the symposium promises to be a powerful, inspirational experience and encourage all women to participate.

    Just reading the entire article, you can see a political agenda written all over that. How comes the ministry of gender affiars do not sponsor events held by the DNCW?? Why is it that only Dr.Henry who seem to be the only one that can rack up govt funds. HMHMHM

      I was also wondering if there is an DNCW why cant all such women activities be done under its umbrella.

      Some individuals have a strange approach of self employment. Schemism/Capitalism/advocacy in the women’s arena.

    I see the original question has still not been answered so I’ll ask again… How much does it cost? (an actual figure rather than sarcasm would be appreciated)

    It costs the same as a season ticket to WCMF or a carnival costume and we always find money for that.

    Congratulations to Dr Henry and her team for your continued hard work.
