Stories and images provide rich and compelling information that help us understand and engage with the experiences of others.
The Career Pathways for Visible Minority Newcomer Women (CPVMNW) Pilot project used Photovoice as one component of the evaluation. Photovoice is a visual participatory action research methodology.
Ten women were recruited to participate in this Photovoice project. The women had participated in the CPVMNW programs and were located across Canada. They shared and reflected on what their photos represented to them. Through the collaborative interpretation and discussion, the women and researchers gained a deeper and more nuanced understanding of opportunities and challenges in their settlement journey.
