Candidate - Director (Quebec)
My name is ELENI BAKOPANOS and I ask for your support for a second mandate to serve on the Board of Directors of Equal Voice. I have served since 2017 on the National Board and Executive Committees of Equal Voice as the Treasurer and Chair of the Audit and Finance Committee. I was re-elected for a second mandate as Vice-President of the Quebec Chapter, À VOIX ÉGALES.
As Treasurer, I worked diligently with EV’s accountant and with the support of the Executive, the Board, and staff to bring more transparency and accountability to EV’s budgets, financial reporting and other financial matters.
I joined EV as a volunteer at the first DOV and had supported EV when I served as a Member of Parliament (1993-2006). I have worked, both as an MP and as a member of many NGO Boards, including VP of the Montreal Council of Women, Past President of the McGill Women’s Alumnae Association, on issues of social justice, equality and social cohesion. I am committed to assuring that EV’s mission to increase the number of women in elected office be realized and have years of experience and expertise in mentoring women to run for elected office.
