"Every woman I talk to dreams of seeing more women elected to government. By joining Equal Voice each one of us can help turn these dreams into reality."
"Johnson & Johnson, Family of Companies in Canada has been a sponsor of Equal Voice since 2005. I am proud of Johnson & Johnson's involvement in helping to encourage more Canadian women to seek public office. But as in public life, so too must corporate Canada remove barriers for women keen to serve boards and lead in senior executive positions. Equal Voice is helping to change the face of Canadian politics, but also stimulating important discussion in corporate Canada. I am excited, personally and professionally, to be a part of the EV team."
"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."
"Electing more women is just common sense."
"Through my project on women and politics, I see how hungry young people are for fairness and equality, and how ready they are to get creatively involved. What they need - what we all need - is the kind of role models and support offered by EV. "
"The lack of women in leadership decreases diversity. When we decrease diversity, we decrease the pool from which we draw ideas and solutions. Equal Voice understands that diversity in leadership enriches us all and that's why EV's work is important to a stronger Canada."
"A Parliament that better reflects the Canadian population is an important step toward making the institution more relevant to its citizens."
"Having capable, qualified women elected to public office is important in the development of well balanced policies."
". . . because it’s taken too damn long!"
"We each have value and are valuable. As women, our participation is vital to the process of creating a culture that is conducive to the pursuit of our potential. Leaders at all levels influence the creation of this culture. Future generations are looking to us to step up and lead the way."
