The Equal Voice Foundation is honoured to have the support of The Hilary and Galen Weston Foundation. Their generosity has allowed us to dramatically increase the number of in-person and online training sessions that we offer to women across Canada, and allow the training to be offered free of charge to participants. This will help elect more women across Canada at all levels of government in the years to come, and Canada will see the benefits for decades.

Pop-up Online Campaign School: Building Your Team + Fundraising

Brought to you by popular demand, this 2-hour pop-up will focus on Building Your Campaign Team + Fundraising. This course is designed for those who are already committed to putting their name on the ballot. Learn about the different roles, where to find them, and volunteer management. Hear about some of the different ways to fundraise! 

The pop-up will take place online using Zoom and in English only. To participate, you will require access to the internet, a microphone, and a web camera.
Closed-captioning will be available.

Pricing

We are delighted that thanks to the generosity of donors to the Equal Voice Foundation we are able to offer this campaign training at no charge to participants. To continue to offer the course for free, we invite you to make a donation to the Equal Voice Foundation.

However, unfortunately in the past we have had participants sign up and not attend sessions.  As we keep the group small for optimal learning, and have a waitlist, people who register and don’t attend are denying a spot to someone on the waitlist.  Therefore, it is important to make sure you are committed to the sessions before you decide to sign up.

**Due to capacity limits, we will be closing applications after a certain number of registrations. If you wish to participate in a future Campaign School, please RSVP or email [email protected] to be added to the waitlist and someone will contact you should more spots become available.**

April 2022

Join Us!

Over the past two years, Equal Voice and the Equal Voice Foundation have seen tremendous improvements to gender representation at all levels of government across Canada. Notably, achieving near gender parity in the BC legislature, and reaching 30% of women MPs in the House of Commons. While we have been unable to celebrate these accomplishments over the last two years, we are finally excited to celebrate these milestones and the contributions that women in politics have made to improve the lives of Canadians.

In partnership with Equal Voice BC, the Equal Voice Foundation is hosting an in-person reception to celebrate the triumph of women politicians in BC and recognize all the steps that we've made towards gender parity.

 

Thank You to Our Partners!
