Board of Directors - Elections 2019

Equal Voice is a member-driven organization with the mandate of getting more women and gender non-conforming Canadians elected to all levels of government.

There are many ways you can become involved! Attend an event, become a member, make a donation or take this opportunity to apply for nomination for the National Board of Directors.

Equal Voice is seeking experienced individuals from diverse backgrounds as candidates for election to a two-year term on the Board of Directors. Directors dedicate approximately ten hours a month to the Board and its committees, may attend one in-person Board meeting a year dependent on available funds, and participate regularly in reviewing and providing advice on policy matters via e-mail or phone.

Equal Voice is particularly looking for Board Directors with experience in:

  • Fundraising
  • Legal expertise
  • Governance
  • Communications
  • Equity and Inclusion
  • Strategic planning

The next Equal Voice Board of Directors will be elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting on September 22, 2019, via virtual meeting. In order to vote and/or run – you must be a member!
