The Equal Voice Calgary Chapter has an active Steering Committee. Throughout the year our local, multi-partisan Committee executes events and programming to raise awareness about the need for more women in positions of power, to encourage women to run for politics and to support & celebrate women in politics. Recent initiatives have included a partnership with the City of Calgary to develop a Model City Council program for high school-aged girls, hosting an event with Facebook aimed at combating online harassment of elected women, and the delivery of training sessions for young women interested in running for office.
