The Coady Today
The Coady diploma program remains central. Its core content continues to be renewed and complimented by new certificate programs that support the organization’s mission and meet the needs of its constituency. The content reflects a growing global awareness of the importance of community asset building and microfinance techniques, two concepts, it should be noted, well known to the Antigonish Movement for decades. In addition to these community mobilization approaches, short 3-4 week certificate courses were reintroduced to the campus-based program. These new content areas included advocacy and networking, conflict transformation and peacebuilding, and women’s leadership, recognizing the persistence of structural inequalities facing women throughout the world.
