Purpose: This 36-month project will ensure that the diverse experiences of Prince Edward Island’s women are considered in government decision-making. Taking a skills-building approach including various workshops, group discussions and a three-day forum with experienced leaders, this project will provide 414 women and girls with knowledge on work-life balance and all the necessary support to run for elected office and/or take on other leadership roles in their communities. The group will also collaborate with the Girl Guides of Prince Edward Island to develop two “Girls Parliaments” to encourage 54 girls to play a leading role in their communities. Women and girls will be empowered to fully participate in democratic life by bringing their experience and perspective to decision and policy-making tables.
