Event description
Join us as we launch our goal to encourage and support women candidates in the 2021 Municipal Election.

About this Event

The 2021 Edmonton Municipal Election marks 100 years since the first woman was elected to City Council. We know that having diverse representation is critical to forming good policies that impact all Edmontonians. While progress has been made, we’ve got a long way to go before we reach gender parity in City Council.

Once again we will be launching our goal to have 50% of all the candidates in the 2021 municipal election to be women. Why half? We know that when women run for office, they generally win at the same rate as men. However they don't run at the same rate as men. There are numerous barriers specific to women running for office and we want to ensure they know we're here to help.

Join us in launching our goal and learn about ways you can help encourage and support women to run in 2021.

Tickets Include: Non stop locally sourced charcuterie and your first drink. We will be premiering our launch video and will have the Honourable Leela Sharon Aheer, Minister Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women to give a keynote.

Sliding scale pricing available, if cost is a barrier for attending email us at info@parityyeg.ca
