Kathleen Walsh

""Its simple to me. Equal representation should already be a thing in 2015; in all levels of government and in the boardroom. Let us make it so.""

Dr. Zul Merali

"I am proud to be an Equal Voice Champion because of the strong role women have played in shaping who I am. Women need to bring their voice to the governance of our country. "

Alanna Newman

Immediate Past Equal Voice Toronto Co-Chair

"We need to engage more women of all ages in the political process, and help them develop the skills and network they need to succeed. Girls interested in politics deserve strong role models. Quite simply, I want more little girls aspire to be Mayors, Premiers, and Prime Ministers. "
