Lesia Babiak

Executive Director, Government Affairs, Johnson & Johnson

"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."

Elizabeth May, MP

Saanich-Gulf Islands, Leader, Green Party of Canada

"Why should you join Equal Voice? Do you want your voice to be equal or do you want your voice to be 24% of the male voices that dominate Canada's Parliament? Do you want Canada's Parliament to rank 45th out of 189 countries in terms of representation of women? You should join Equal Voice because you want to be represented, and you are no longer willing to be embarrassed by this country's poor record. Women are needed in Parliament, and only you can get us there. "

Dr. Hedy Fry, MP

Vancouver Centre

"We need more women at all levels of government in order to make better and more balanced public policy decisions. Women still face multiple barriers to running for elected office, and it is important that elected men and women encourage, mentor, and support them."

Kathleen Monk

Senior Advisor, Broadbent Institute

"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."

Sarah Onyango

Civic Engagement Advocate

"If we - as women - want to 'be the change' we want to see in our communities and country, we must drive that change by making sure we help get more women - from diverse backgrounds - to the decision-making table at all levels of government. Gender balance in our legislatures and on our city councils is key to the very legitimacy of our democracy. I want to be a part of the change by being an EV Champion. I invite you to join this powerful movement!"

Rita Komarova

Treasurer, EV National Capital Region

"We need more women elected so young girls can have more role models. Electing more women isn't just a desire, it is a necessity for Canada's future. "

Hon. Raynell Andreychuk

Senator

"Involving women in the democratic process is about more than improving the representativeness of our political system. It is about fostering a policymaking process that is truly receptive to and reflective of the unique perspectives Canadian women bring to the table. Done properly, greater inclusiveness results in policies that more accurately reflect the breadth of Canadian society and experience, and that are more adept at upholding the common good for all Canadians."

Shari Graydon

Founder, Informed Opinions

"The only way we're ever going to achieve a more equitable distribution of the social costs of perpetuating the species is for women to be sharing our experience-informed perspectives in the corridors of power."

Minh Luu

Chief Social Architect, M&C

"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."

Hon. Isabel Bassett

Former Ontario Minster of Citizenship, Culture and Recreation

"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."
