Equal Voice Alberta launches workshops to recruit more women into politics

Equal Voice Alberta is urging more women to run in the 2019 Alberta provincial election.

The group launched their She Leads Campaign 101 Workshops on Saturday with a panel discussion that drew more than 40 attendees.

Organizer Jenessa Crognali says the first session was about learning to navigate the nomination process — one of the first steps toward getting elected.

"We decided to make our first Campaign 101 Workshop focused on demystifying that process so that women who aren't already involved with a party or who might not have those connections are able to get the information they need," she said.
