What is the ROSE Program?
Simply put, ROSE (Reaching Ontario Sharing Education) is what Women's Institutes have been doing for over a century – providing education to help build stronger families and vibrant communities. This unique province-wide initiative is driven by WI Members who often work with local community organizations and businesses to increase awareness, provide support and promote community action.
What is a ROSE Session?
A ROSE Session is any educational event hosted by a Women’s Institute that involves the public. For example, workshops, guest speakers, presentations, how-to demonstrations and information fairs that are open to the public are ROSE Sessions. Women’s Institutes have the freedom to select any topic or area of focus for their ROSE Sessions – there are no limitations!
How does the ROSE Program work?
As an integral part of communities across Ontario, Women’s Institutes have great insight as to the priorities and needs of their families, friends, neighbours and communities at large. Listening to these needs allows Women’s Institutes to select interesting and relevant topics as the basis for their ROSE Sessions. The look and feel of ROSE Sessions varies depending on the hosting Women’s Institute.

The logo contains a combination of a vibrant purple and earth-tone green. The purple colour was chosen because it is regal and feminine. Purple roses are also rare, beautiful and unique. The colour green represents rural, grass roots and earth and denotes credibility.
