Equal Voice - Daughters of the Vote: Apply Today!
August 12, 2020
Equal Voice is thrilled to announce that we have launched the application period for the 2021 edition of the Daughters of the Vote program.
For those who may not have been involved with us in the past, Daughters of the Vote is an ambitious initiative by Equal Voice that began in 2017 to mark the 100th anniversary of some women getting the right to vote in Canada, and the still incomplete journey of women’s full participation in politics today.
In 2017, 338 delegates, representing every federal riding in Canada, were selected through an open call for applications to participate in a dynamic political leadership summit in Ottawa. They were fortunate to replicate the event in 2019, and will be doing so once again in March 2021 with additional programming and a brand-new virtual format.
The program objective is to expose participants to Canada’s political institutions and those women and men serving in them – so that they are equipped and inspired to participate in the formal political sphere and take action in their local communities in the years and decades to come. As a result of COVID-19, the DOV 2021 program will take place entirely online to ensure the health and safety of our staff, delegates and volunteers.
