Founded in 2016, we are the Central Vancouver Island group of Equal Voice. Since forming we have held annual community engagement events every International Women's Day, organized campaign training for women running in municipal elections and started a mentorship program for young women called Women Lead, a partnership with the City of Nanaimo. We welcome new members who are committed to our goal of inspiring and empowering more women to run for all levels of political office.
