The CCP Champions for Change (C4C)

 
The CCP Champions for Change (C4C) initiative takes lead from existing gender champion endeavors to establish a network of women and men affiliated with the CCP who commit to the ideals of gender equality and the betterment of women's working conditions. The women and men that become Champions will ideally be PCU and ACCU officers, CCP staff, trainers and collaborators who actively promote and encourage gender equality in their everyday work. Upon selection, a Champion will make a pledge committing to gender equality.
