We are recruiting three to four individuals to serve as board members. Joining our board of directors is a one-year commitment, with the possibility for extension. Board memberships take effect as of April 2016, and the expected time commitment is 1-2 meetings (2-4 hours per month), in addition to working group meetings as required.
While we encourage applications from all people who identify as women, we recognize the importance of a diverse leadership team, and will give preference to applications from Indigenous women, Francophone women, LGBTQ identified women, women of colour, immigrant women, and women with disabilities.
We are interested in a variety of skills and experiences, however, at this time, we are seeking women with expertise in one or more of the following areas:
Equal Access. Equal Power. Equal Representation.
We will actively engage women with politics and create opportunities to amplify their voices.
Women & Politics is a citizen-led initiative that looks to engage and increase the participation of women in the political landscape. We host social events, develop educational resources and tools, participate in political activities, and connect women with their community and each other.
We are a non-partisan organization. We welcome all women to participate in our programs and events regardless of their political affiliation or knowledge of politics.
