ParityYEG events bring together candidates, community partners, elected officials and business leaders to create meaningful dialogue around parity in a fun and engaging way.
Over the course of the year, we will be hosting a variety of social, educational and networking events to catapult women from just thinking about running to actually doing it. Our future events will include campaign schools, speaker series and mentorship opportunities, just to name a few.
Parity YEG, in collaboration with Dave Cournoyer of Daveberta.ca, has put together a live dashboard to track women candidates for the next provincial election. The dashboard keeps track of both women candidates who are seeking nominations, as well as those who have been nominated to run.
Join ParityYEG on October 25 as we launch our Parity x Party Dashboard with a night of networking and conversation. Special guest, Alyson Connolly, will be doing a brief presentation on public speaking followed by a Q&A. There will be appetizers and a cash bar. The venue has limited space so be sure to get your tickets sooner rather than later!
