Biographical history

Isobel MacKay was Assistant Dean of Women at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario during the time period covered by the documents in this fonds, and as such was involved in the organization and operation of a group called "Community Resources for Women." This group was formed early in 1978 to answer a perceived need for communication among groups and agencies in the region who were then providing services to women and described itself as a "non-profit, inter-agency group whose objectives are to co-ordinate programs of activity which allow for information sharing, discovery of ways to co-operate and skill acquisition for group members." The group operated successfully at least until 1983, with representation from approximately forty community groups and agencies. Activities included luncheon meetings with speakers and skills development workshops. The group also put out a newsletter for members and compiled a service directory of participating organizations. Isobel MacKay was involved in Community Resources for Women from its beginnings and in 1980-1981 served as the Chair of the Steering Committee.
