Lydie Olga Ntap

Board Member and Vice President, Canada

Function at IAWM: Vice-president

Biography: I am an attorney specialized in intellectual property and founder of the first Women’s Museum in Canada. As museologist I am currently a doctoral candidate in Museology at the UQAM (Université du Québec à Montréal).

I am involved in various administrative boards, including chairing on Action- Service aux Proches Aidants (ASAPAL), an organization offering support to caregivers of senior citizens. For 2 consecutive years (2010 -2012). I was columnist and permanent member of the UN Council on the show «L’après-midi porte conseil» on Radio-Canada.

Museum: The Musée de la Femme aims to raise awareness of the contribution of women in the development of Quebec and Canada. By making the history of women audible and accessible to diverse audiences of all ages, the museum contributes to efforts towards gender equality. The museum allows the strengthening and consolidation of the participation of women in the social, economic and public life.

Why am I working at IAWM?

I intend to make use of my expertise in law, my part of the francophone universe and my anchoring in North America. 4 strategic priorities drive me to make my mandate within the IAWM practical and efficient: visibility, international influence, support & mobilization and fundraising. Working for IAWM gives me the opportunity to contribute developing partnerships at the local, national and international levels.
