About this event

Inclusive Canada and The Community YYC are teaming up to provide a series of events to introduce some of the candidates running in the 2021 civic election for Calgary city council!

This will be an opportunity to hear from candidates themselves, sharing who they are and what they are working towards, with a chance to ask YOUR questions.

We think it’s incredibly important for people to get involved in municipal politics, especially right now. So come get involved, get engaged and get activated. We CAN make change together.

In this event, get to know... JYOTI GONDEK:

Jyoti means “light” in Punjabi. She embodies her name by shedding light on issues and has an innate ability to light up a room. Jyoti has an inclusive and respectful leadership style. When a point needs to be made, she makes it, but only after giving full consideration to all points of view. She’s not afraid to challenge, to ask tough questions, to call out the elephant in the room. She will only do so, however, after seeking input from those around her and without taking her eye off the ultimate goal.

Jyoti believes that Calgary will only achieve its fullest potential through a shared vision and collaboration. Her curiosity and ability to ask why things are the way they are, has helped create solutions for the problems we face as a growing city. Often, she has found processes and policies exist simply because they have never been questioned. She has come to understand that when we start to probe and chip away at issues, we move forward with improvements that have meaning in our everyday lives.

Jyoti also believes in the power of cross-sector partnerships where businesses, social organizations and educational institutions are connected to local governments. The more we can understand complex issues from all angles, the better we are able to uncover solutions.
