50 for London: It’s Our Turn
Updated: Nov 23, 2020
Women & Politics London, in partnership with Diverse Voices for Change (an initiative by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities), is hosting a one-day event where prospective candidates can learn skills to run an effective municipal campaign and Londoners who want to engage more with the City can learn about civic engagement opportunities. While our focus is to encourage women of diverse communities to attend, this event is open to all.
Our day will begin with our keynote speaker Kristyn Wong-Tam, Toronto City Councillor, and then the sessions will be divided in two streams:
Stream 1: Campaign School – learn about fundraising, friendraising, data management, canvassing, and volunteer coordiantion.
Stream 2: Civic Engagement – learn different ways you can volunteer with the City of London and sit on their advisory committees, boards, and commissions.
The day will conclude with a panel of former women politicians who will share their journey in politics.
A more detailed agenda will be shared with participants closer to the date.
*Lunch will be provided and childminding will be available.
