Naam van de archiefvormer
ACTEW, originally Advocates for Community-based Training and Education for Women, was a provincial membership organization for programs that provided community training to women. It began in 1988 as an outgrowth of another provincial umbrella group, ONESTEP, Ontario Network of Skills Training and Employment Programs. The women's organizations belonging to ONESTEP decided they needed a more women-centered, feminist organization to represent their specific needs. ACTEW changed its name in 2004 to A Women's Training Community. Over the years that ACTEW existed the organization published many reports, briefs and responses to government initiatives including: Access Diminished: A report on women's training and employment services in Ontario (2001); Challenges and Connections: Meeting the Information Needs of Professionals Working with Immigrant Women (2001), Operation Access (1989), Choosing Training, Shortcuts to Career Development Resources for Girls and Women. The group dissolved in 2008 due to lack of funding.
The ACTEW records were donated to the Canadian Women's Movement Archives at the University of Ottawa Archives and Special Collections in 2017. Since the dissolution of ACTEW in 2008, they had been in the possession of Karen Lior, an executive director and board member of the organization.
