Event description

Description

Are you a student who has a strong interest in politics and even consider running for public office in the future?

The Faculty of Arts is offering a series of workshops – free of charge – that will give students who identify as women the knowledge and skills how to shake up electoral politics.

Hear from experts how women are increasingly energizing communities and taking up the challenge to run for election, build a strong leadership team, and amplify their voices through the media.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to interact with other students and benefit from the expertise of democratic advocates to empower your political voice.

Workshop Dates:

February 11: Why Women Take Up the Electoral Challenge
Speaker: Etana Cain, Community Engagement Fund Manager | Equal Voice
This workshop will discuss women’s under-representation and how our governments make decisions that affect women’s lives. Etana will explore some of the key issues facing women ahead of the federation election in October.

February 25: Campaigning, Organizing and Building Power
Speaker: Michal Hay, Executive Director | Progress Toronto
This workshop will explore how effective leadership is about inspiring people to participate, lead, and act. Michal will share examples from electoral and advocacy campaigns to provide insights on how we can build effective and powerful teams.

March 4: Amplifying Our Voices in the Media
Speakers: Suelan Toye, Communications Officer | Faculty of Arts & Lauren Clegg, Media Relations Officer | Ryerson University’s University Relations
This workshop will focus on the portrayal of women in the media, challenges women face on social media, and the power of the press and social media to communicate your key messages to your audiences. Suelan and Lauren will give tips on how to get your message across without being railroaded by media and how to leverage social media platforms to amplify your voice.

Jorgenson Hall, 4th floor boardroom, 380 Victoria Street. | 6 to 8 p.m.
