Jill Poulton

Executive and Life Coach

"We each have value and are valuable. As women, our participation is vital to the process of creating a culture that is conducive to the pursuit of our potential. Leaders at all levels influence the creation of this culture. Future generations are looking to us to step up and lead the way."

Lana Cuthbertson

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. "

Amanda Nielsen

President, Athabasca University Graduate Students' Association

"I am proud to call myself an Equal Voice Champion because, with the Canadian Parliament consisting of just 25% elected women and the Alberta Legislature consisting of just 26% elected women, our organization still needs to exist. Until we work ourselves out of a job by seeing more elected woman to all levels of Canadian government, Equal Voice matters."

Claire Detheridge

Councillor of 31 yrs, Cape Breton Regional Municipality

"Women have a perspective that needs to expressed. We are an equal to our male counterparts; remember votes for women translate to stronger voices for women. "

Susan Richards

Former Equal Voice board Member, CEO and Co-founder of Givopoly, Managing Partner and Co-founder of Numbercrunch

""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.""

Mary Anne Carter

Equal Voice NCR Chapter Co-Chair

"I not only want more women in the House; I want more women managing finance, foreign affairs and national defence."

Peggy Taillon

President & CEO, Canadian Council on Social Development & Founder, HERA Mission of Canada

"If we want politics to be better, to do better, to reflect the rich diversity of this country and to consider the greater good, we need more women to make their voice heard. "
