The program is aimed at supporting women who are interested in running for municipal office. PoliticsNOW encourages all women, including, Indigenous women, women of colour and members of the LGBTQ2S community, to join us. Through workshops and training opportunities, our program is designed to support those who are interested in a career in politics, as well as those who plan on supporting a campaign for a woman who is interested in running for municipal office all throughout northern Ontario. This program is offered to women in Northern Ontario, and will concentrate primarily on answering the needs of women living in our region.
We've run two bootcamps in the north - our first in Sudbury, and our second in North Bay. Both were a huge success! Thank you to everyone who came - from our presenters, to our participants - and to our donors who made this possible. The energy of the room was palpable and it was a beautiful day to learn about campaigns and make connections with awesome women. These women are changing the landscape of Northern Ontario! We can't wait for the next event!
Topics of Conversation
We gather experts in their respective field to talk about a variety of topics. Past sessions included: Telling Your Story, Deciding To Run, Communicating Your Message, Campaign 101, Building Your Team, Fundraising and How To Win. We've also had current women politicians come and tell their story and answer questions about what life as a city councillor entails. These bootcamps are free of charge to all participants (as long as we can manage it), and as a result, we depend on the generosity of sponsors and donations from people like you. If you value the work that we do, please consider donating to our cause so that we can continue to put on events like this and ensure that the next generation of women politicians are the most prepared that we've ever had.
