As President, I am proud to contribute alongside our Board of Directors. I invite you to learn more about the realities of Inuit women and the work Pauktuutit does by reading about our mandate, advocacy, and department projects.

By working with government, community leaders and Inuit organizations, we support Inuit women to reach their full potential in safe, happy communities.
