"Equal Voice challenges women to move beyond exercising influence at the ballot box and supports women in winning seats on the political benches. I’m an Equal Voice champion because I want to see more women winning."
"Equal Voice allows women to learn from other women who may already have the experience, knowledge, and confidence to make a difference in this country. By inspiring and encouraging future generations, we can together change the future."
"At Women’s College Hospital the motto is Non Quo Sed Quo Modo – “it’s not what you do but how.” It’s the same in politics and more women change not only what is discussed but how we work together to make change in the public good. "
"Women in positions of political leadership make a huge difference in how campaigns are run – and won – and improve the chances of having legislation adopted once elected because of their collaborative approach to decision-making."
"The lack of women in leadership decreases diversity. When we decrease diversity, we decrease the pool from which we draw ideas and solutions. Equal Voice understands that diversity in leadership enriches us all and that's why EV's work is important to a stronger Canada."
"I want our daughters & sons to be so used to seeing women in public leadership roles that it is no longer "exceptional.""
"When a woman runs for office, she learns certain lessons. Why should every woman learn them from scratch? Together we can build on each others' experiences and get much further ahead"
""Its simple to me. Equal representation should already be a thing in 2015; in all levels of government and in the boardroom. Let us make it so.""
"It's high time that I leaned in. Equal Voice is a great organization that I am pleased to support as a way to give back. I believe passionately that women leaders are key to strengthening our democracy and our nation."
"I applaud Equal Voice for its efforts to portray images of strong, dynamic women leaders, regardless of political party affiliation, embedding a national consciousness that women’s leadership makes a difference and matters to all. We don’t have to “Be Her”, but we will celebrate her, write a cheque for her and vote for her. Let’s break the glass ceiling in Ottawa."
