Guelph’s population is approximately 50% women, yet after the 2014 municipal election women held only 38% of elected positions.
A collaboration of several community partners have developed a campaign school to help women overcome barriers and support them through their political campaign.
The campaign school will be held on February 24, 2018 to prepare any potential candidates for running for municipal government or school board trustee. Participants will learn how to build a platform and campaign, and communications strategies. More information can be found here.
