Chat with canadian women without signing up
Here’s a recap of that conversation—edited for length and clarity. I’d like to talk about what each of your parties is doing to welcome a diverse group of women.
I’m not talking just about recruitment techniques and goals, but also party policy.
Having women in key roles is a welcoming sign for other women.
And good for them, I hope the best person wins—because they’re all out there trying to get their nomination, and we see them not necessarily as women, not necessarily as minorities, but as somebody who can go out and win the vote.KINGSTON: The NDP has specific policy targets in terms of representation.MCGRATH: We have those policies throughout every part of the political party, whether it’s at the level of the executive, council or officers.That’s very important because if we don’t change the face of Parliament, then I think we’ll continue on the way that we have been.But there are all sorts of roles within a political party that are very, very important.
