Inspirit Grantee Institut F Receives Federal Grant


Institut F has received a federal grant of $144,261 to launch the Cultiver Un Leadership D’Excellence Program [Cultivating Excellence in Leadership Program], a free leadership training program for Muslim Women in Quebec.

The institute is one among 15 organizations in Quebec, which received the grant under the Anti-Racism Action Program of the Government of Canada. The program addresses barriers to employment, justice, and social participation among Indigenous Peoples, racialized communities, and religious minorities. Read more about the grant here.

Institut F is now inviting applications from 25 Muslim women in Quebec to participate in the training program. Set to launch on February 10, the program will provide tools to Muslim women professionals, entrepreneurs, and intrapreneurs to fight racism in the workplace, improve negotiating and public speaking skills, and expand their professional network.
